Wheel of Friendship

As a passive latecomer to Facebook, my contact clustering reflects a network crawl of preferential attachment (ref. Linked).


The circular layout makes it easy to read the names, and to see some interesting groupings (see overlay notes), but bogs down with a scribble of supernodes on the bottom left.


An alternative depiction is the 2D splat map used by Lumeta for the Internet and Gustavo for flickr networks.
