Project Description:
LJNet is an interactive visualization of LiveJournal.com (LJ) members' social networks. It shows the friends and friends of friends of any given LJ member. The user can simultaneously browse the networks of friendship connections and interest matches amongst all these displayed members. The user can do this by clicking on any user in the display - any non-friends of theirs will fade away and any member that shares interests with the clicked member will gain a translucent yellow halo (sized in relation to their shared interests).

LJNet is the work of Patrick Barry. It was made initially as a project in Golan Levin's class Information Visualization as Art Practice during his Master's coursework at Carnegie Mellon's Human-Computer Interaction Institute.
