How Twitter is Changing the Geography of Communication

via theatlanticcities:

“We wrote in late 2011 about some early research suggesting that many Twitter users in fact follow other people located within their same city, evidence, Richard Florida wrote, that the Internet is reinforcing the value of place instead of eliminating it.

But now that Twitter is a few years older – and considerably more global – Leetaru and several colleagues have conducted a massive new analysis of the site that suggests the opposite: ‘In effect,’ Leetrau says, ‘location plays a much lesser role now in terms of who we talk to, what we talk about, and where we get our information.’”

Circle of Trust: Revealing the Asymmetry of your Google+ Network
Circle of Trust by São Paulo-based D3 shows the potential asymmetry of your social network at Google Plus. In  other words, the organic network diagram highlights how your social  network is divided between the people that are inside the so-called  “circle of trust” (people that you trust, and they trust you), and those  who are somehow outside.
