The answer to facebook... How to visually understand who is really connected to who online and who has the most potetential for helping your ideas spread

Ken Morrison's insight:

If you want to be able to help give your ideas wings and help your ideas spread, you need to be able to study the infrastructure of your social and professional networks.  This tool by WolframAlpha can help you visualize your network.  Mine looks a little like an eye (fitting) and a little like the Death Star (scary).

WARNING: This is easy to use but you will probably kill 30 minutes or more exploring.  It is well worth your time. It has changed the way (and time of the day) that I use Facebook based on what I have learned.
