pivotgraph.jpga novel technique for visualizing & analyzing complex graph structures, such as of social networks. the method is designed specifically for graphs that are “multivariate,” i.e., where each node is associated with several attributes. unlike visualizations which
emphasize global graph topology, PivotGraph uses a simple grid-based approach to focus on the relationship between
node attributes & connections.
the graph is rolled up by two different data attributes (x & y-axis). the area of each circle is proportional to the size variable of the node. because of the grid structure of the graph layout, straight edges would almost always have serious occlusion problems. therefore, quadratic curved edges are drawn between nodes, with widths corresponding to their weights.

Hi... Any "see also" links regarding graph visualizations?

not many out there, aesthetic-wise.

look for 'network' or 'social' on this website, maybe?

Don't know if you have already profiled it, but have you seen SF University Vizter Project? See: http://www.box.net/public/azhqprp7yh
It's a wmv file uploaded on box.not. I don't know if you have to register to access it. Otherwise, look for Vizter on google! (maping networks on social computing sites)
