DataVisualization.ch showcases the work of Valentina Defilippo, a talented Graphic Designer who has just completed a series of charts mapping social networks.
“A social network is a social structure made of nodes (which are generally individuals or organizations) that are tied by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as values, visions, ideas, financial exchange, friendships, kinship, dislike, conflict or trade. Social network analysis views social relationships in terms of nodes and ties. Nodes are the individual actors within the networks, and ties are the relationships between people. All too often, the design of sociometric diagrams ignores the fact that data reflects the plight of real people. Abstract and unemotional, these forms of presentation lack the human insight.”
The result is a physical book that shows some interesting charts and graphs of various user’s social interactions online. Unfortunately, the images online are rather low-resolution. Hopefully she will release some higher-resolution images soon!
