COOLINT, Facebook Edition: Visualize Your Social Network! (Nexus)

Facebook has just added a new application called Nexus that allows a Facebook user to actually visualize his or her network of Facebook friends. I cannot think of a better way to introduce some of the core concepts of Social Network Analysis to Intelligence Studies students than through this application. See a still image of my network below (The still image does not do the app justice as the full app carries many of the attributes associated with the friend network as well).
