Visually Exploring Your Network
LinkedIn have a impressive feature that allows you to visualise your professional network to help you see the relationships between you and your connections. Check out LinkedIn Maps to create your own.
Here’s how it works: your map is color-coded to cluster groups from your professional career, such as your previous employer, school mates, or networking groups you’ve been part of. In my map, my Sputnik Agency collegues are blue, while my friends connected through the Social Melbourne network are orange and another employer Revium are green.
It's evident that people who work together are all inter-related and interesting to see how a few people I know also seem to know others in seperate network groups, this can be explained by the fact Ive worked in Melbourne most of my life within the technology industry.
What does your own map look like?
