LinkedIn InMaps

I know the LinkedIn InMaps is not new but the analysis of social networks is becoming increasingly relevant to a project I am working on at the moment, so I wanted to revisit this visualisation app but also re-read some of the articles that where written at the time.

One that was quite good was Whitney Hess’ “Hubs and Connectors: Understanding Networks Through Data Visualization” which can be found on her blog “Pleasure and Pain” here:

If you are interested in understanding more about social networks than I would also commander chapter eight of “Beautiful Visualisation – Visualizing the U.S. Senate Social Graph (1991 – 2009)” from Safari Books. They have a chapter preview here.

LinkedIn Labs had this to say about it all:

You can check out LinkedIn Maps and create one of your own here:
