One of the first projects I wanted to share was how I created my social graph. This was something that I started on at my last session with ELP as a way to better understand network weaving.
The social graph was a great exercise to keep track of connections I made throughout my career, keep track of important details about people I work with, find whether other connections existed in my social graph, and refresh my mind about connections that have not been kept up.
I am going to write a few entries outlining a step by step process for collecting data from LinkedIn and Facebook, merging that into Google Contacts, then using that in Kumu.io, which was the social graphing software that I relied on from this project.
And so you can get a taste for the final product, here is a screenshot from the social graph I put together. It’s like a coral reef!
