Get your friends round on Friend Wheel

I long wanted to uncover a mechanism for seeing which of my friends/contacts is connected to which others on LinkedIn, but the site just makes it to hard – you have to go through each one individually and there is no way I’m even going to try doing it manually.

So it was with some delight that I came across Friend Wheel, which maps the connections that you have on Facebook and their links to each other. Mine is below.

As you can see, my Facebook contacts clearly split into so notable clusters (or none at all).

What a fabulous tool for a bunch of reasons
– when planning a party, you can easily see who already knows who.
– you can see relationships you perhaps never knew existed
– you might introduce friends to each other who you think would hit it off

C’mon LinkedIn, kindly keep up.
