Recent years have witnessed the dramatic popularity of online social networking services, in which millions of members publicly articulate mutual "friendship" relations. [...] Key Method Our design builds upon familiar node link network layouts to contribute customized techniques for exploring connectivity in large graph structures, supporting visual search and analysis, and automatically identifying and visualizing community structures. Both public installation and controlled studies of the system provide…Expand
HiMap: Adaptive visualization of large-scale online social networks
TLDR
This paper presents HiMap, a system that visualizes it by clustered graph via hierarchical grouping and summarization using a novel adaptive data loading technique and provides an integrated suite of interactions to allow the users to easily navigate the social map with smooth and coherent view transitions to keep their momentum.

Exploring Twitter Interactions through Visualization Techniques: Users Impressions and New Possibilities
TLDR
This investigation investigated how standard techniques of information visualization can improve the analysis of its users’ behavior, i.e. the group of people who most closely relate, and the frequency and type of messages they send on Twitter. Expand
Social reader: following social networks in the wilds of the blogosphere
TLDR
Social Reader is an example of Casual Information Visualization, and aims to help the user understand and explore blog-based social networks in a daily, real-life setting. Expand
Twitviz - Exploring Twitter network for your interests
TLDR
Twitviz provides two main tools in the form social network graphs: the Keyword view displays relationships between keywords of interest and users tweeting about them; and the user’s egocentric Network view that emphasizes on reciprocal followers. Expand
Visualization of Social Networks
TLDR
This chapter will first review the background of social network analysis and visualization methods, and then introduce various novel visualization applications for social networks, to discuss the challenges and the future development of visualizing online social networks. Expand

Visualizing Social Networks
TLDR
This chapter discusses the main goal of visualization and how different metaphors are aimed towards elucidating different aspects of social networks, such as structure and semantics, and describes a number of methods where analytics and visualization are interwoven towards providing a better comprehension of social structure and dynamics.
