Touchgraph and Facebook – drag, drop, twiddle, poke and scrape your lunchbreak away

Touchgraph is a very neat little Java Application that lets you link data in a graphical way and explore and drill down into the data. TouchGraph’s powerful visualization solutions let you discover relationships between people, organizations and ideas. It’s a million times more interesting than a spreadsheet and luckily there is a very cool Facebook implementation which is great because

  • its free (I love that word!)
  • it automatically links in all your friends and shows their photos and the relationship between your friends and their photos
  • its strangely compelling and you will find yourself wasting time by just dragging things around
  • you can then upload any of these pictures straight into your facebook pictures album
