Social Network Mapping

This is a Nexus map of my facebook friends constellation. (You can generate one of these for your own friends network yourself by clicking this link while logged in to your facebook account.) This sort of social networking visualization tool has been around for a while. (Here’s a review of some of it.) Our hope is to use such software to visualize the growth of Integrated STEM community. For now, we might try creating facebook groups and mapping growth that way. Stay tuned:)
