Has anyone seen/done any work on the use of social networks as a tool for
storytelling or jogging one's memory?  Or has there been any work where
externally generated social network (visualizations?) are given to an
individual as a starting point for ethnographies?  Or have they been used
as an artifact that encourages self-reflection?

I'm grappling with how social networks can be personally meaningful, not
simply a tool for an outsider to analyze people/groups or a tool for
indicating social status.

Any leads or suggestions would be great!
