boards.ie Circle of Friends

The circle of friends graph view on boards.ie appeared today, showing a person’s friends and friends of friends (buddies of buddies!) on the site. There are 14201 links from 3810 users to 4533 other users.

Here are a few pictures of the overall network, but since my user ID is the lowest the first one centres around me. Everyone isn’t connected; there are some bunches of people (clustered in the top left of the first picture) that aren’t interlinked with the rest.

The last images are zooming in on the force-directed version of the overall network graph, where the hubs or nodes with the most links will gravitate towards the centre of the universe.
