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

 April 2, 2009

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

Setup the Facebook application here – http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=3267890192

Here it is in operation:

Nick Litten Dot Com is a mixture of blog posts that can be sometimes serious, frequently playful and probably down-right pointless all in the space of a day. Enjoy your stay, feel free to comment and remember: If at first you don't succeed then skydiving probably isn't a hobby you should look into.
