This group could form
  a basic social unit




       Hey! It’s a social graph
     right in the title sequence
It’s the way we all became
      the social graph




Relationships happen through content sharing

How we might
visualize it today

  Marsha           Carol




Jan                  ...

The graph changes depending on context

The Social Graph in 6.5 Minutes

From the latest installment of Digital Technocracy, the DraftFCB series that challenges people to present concepts to the agency in 6.5 minutes.

My challenge was to present the social graph. So I did what any 36 year old American would do: look to the Brady Bunch to show us the way.

From Sherwood Shwartz's social graph to how we map relationships, through Facebook's Open Graph. How social networks are mapped, and the common characteristics that make up weak or strong networks, it's a basic primer on how we're all connected to the people that matter online.

  • The Social Graph in 6.5 Minutes

    1. 1. The Social Graph mmm, graphy.
    2. 2. The Social Graph is the networked public of actors (people, organizations, objects) connected by one or more kinds of interdependency. It’s a lot.

    6. 6. It’s the way we all became the social graph Relationships happen through content sharing through devices
    7. 7. How we might visualize it today Greg Marsha Carol Jan Peter Cindy Mike Bobby The more content sent to the same people the more we can understand about the relationships between them
    8. 8. Here’s where it gets nutty The graph changes depending on context
    9. 9. Deciding on a vacation Jan Peter Carol Marsha Greg Mike Cindy Bobby
    10. 10. What to write on a silver platter Jan Peter Marsha Greg Cindy Bobby
    11. 11. Collecting, connecting, processing, visualizing understanding It’s a lot of freakin work.
    12. 12. Facebook tries to make this easy ...for us to identify ourselves, and to draw the social graph for them

    21. 21. So what do we do? • Start graphing our clients’ audiences (with the help of specialists) • We can practice this internally too • Not in the typical reach-based influencer model • Who has the most overlap between groups? • Be the first large agency with real network visualization and predictive modeling
    22. 22. Why it matters • The social graph shows us how consensus is made in groups. • We must facilitate meaningful interaction between people. • Understanding network dynamics is growing in importance every minute.
    23. 23. What’s the single most important immediate goal?
