In the first part I explained the social graph concept and the connection with online content and people search. In the second part I suggested alternative ways to build graphs for finding more connections and meaningful relationships.
1. A graph showing how are we linked. To the “trivial” connections (friends, fan and followers) add associative links that may reveal new connections between individuals. Examples: common bookmarks on delicious, a post’s comment, digg-ing your post.
2. A graph showing the depth of the interactions/relationships between disconnected individuals. In my opinion, by showing multiple actions taken on social objects we can expose hidden meaningful relationships.
