Friend Webs on Facebook

Got a facebook account ?

Why don't you login to facebook and head on over to http://apps.facebook.com/friendwebs/ and see Solutiongrove's first ever Facebook app.

It's a neat interactive visualization of your friends on Facebook. If you're curious as to why we called it Friend Webs, take a look at the screen shot below, it's obvious.

We used Jsviz to generate the cool force directed graph and Extjs for the toolbar, popup and effects.

Dave wrote an openacs facebook-api package that made it really easy to talk to facebook from OpenACS.

It's currently in beta and we would really appreciate comments and suggestions on how to improve it and make it even cooler.
