an interactive network visualization of one's social network on facebook, which highlights commonalities between common friends.

this tool exists already since quite a while, but an anonymized demo can now be explored for those (few) without a Facebook account.

did anyone find any striking patterns in their social network?

Actually, I didnt find the network visualizer at all, not under networks, or friends, so if one is a facebook member where do you click to see said graph?

Well, it's interesting to see the connections, but, to be perfectly honest, those "colourful stripe connection" graphs are starting to bore me, aesthetically.

Yeah, I was playing with this awhile ago and noticed a whole group of five that were only connected to each other and no one else in mm friends. It turned out these were my Swedish friends form study abroad. You can see here:http://www.thehighcontrast.com/?p=273

Its a well done tool. As I mention in a post I wrote about it, I would like to see more options for analysis. Nothing fancy, but just enough to give some information that graphs alone cannot make apparent.
