LinkedIn Network Visualized with InMaps

InMaps is an interactive visual representation of your professional universe that answers all of the above questions.
It’s a great way to understand the relationships between you and your entire set of LinkedIn connections.
With it you can better leverage your professional network to help pass along job opportunities, seek professional advice, gather insights, and more.

LinkedIn’s chief scientist DJ Patil with a brief description of how it works

The Nodes are colour-coded by groups you’ve affiliated yourself with, and placement is based on how you and the people in those groups connect. Bigger nodes represent people who are more connected in the group. Zoom in for more detail, and pan to see what you want. It’s interesting, as you get to see your network and then you determine what each cluster/colour code means. Here’s my LinkedIn network visualized. There are some meaningful clusters for me. My ‘Professional Networks’ are basically divided in two categories: Blue for my ‘Marketing Network’ and Russet for ‘Social Business’.

Explore your connections and label your professional worlds

According to LinkedIn InMaps is an interactive visual representation of your professional universe that answers all of the above questions.  It’s a great way to understand the relationships between you and your entire set of LinkedIn connections. With it you can better leverage your professional network to help pass along job opportunities, seek professional advice, gather insights, and more.
Your map is actually a view into how your professional world has been created over time. To get a sense of how that’s true, label each cluster (colour) and explore your connections to see who are the major bridges on your map.
Just like snowflakes, no two networks are the same. Not convinced?
[PS: You must have 50 connections and 75% of your profile completed to access your InMap]
How does your network look? Looking forward to your feedback!
