I suppose SOCNETTers have heard about Google Friend Finder. If not
here it is: http://www.google.com/intl/en/press/annc/20080512_friend_connect.html
Now it's beginning to make sense as to how Google is now getting into
the social networking space with Google Friend Finder as well as
OpenSocial, after Eric Schmidt announced that Google will become more
social and how they want to use Google search on your social graph.
Facebook applications are now churning up that show how you can
visualize your friends' connections and your own social network, here
are some example applications:
ManyEyes from IBM Research - http://apps.facebook.com/manyeyes/
Nexus - http://nexus.ludios.net/
It seems like social networking applications are now becoming easier
to create more than ever before.
