Visualization of Social Interactions in Facebook

Takashi Okamoto, Kyle Buza

With the popularity of social networks such as Facebook, we have greatly extended our social interactions from the physical into the digital. With social networks we have an increase in interaction opportunities; however, how we experience the interaction is rather bland. Accompanying social interactions with interesting visual feedback is one way to enrich this new space. In our demo, we present E15:FB -- a visualization application which shows a graphical representation of social interactions with individual Facebook users. The application also provides alternative methods to navigate Facebook content beyond what is provided through the Facebook website, and creates new opportunities to interact with related content outside of Facebook.
