  3. Social Graph vs. Interest Graph

    Social Graph: Social networks that map your existing offline relationships, and are merely a website that provides online tools to enhance and foster these connections (i.e. Facebook, LinkedIn).

    Interest Graph: Social networks that are built around specific topics of interest, and are formed because individuals are lacking such relationships in their offline lives and thus aggregate into communities online (i.e. Twitter, Citizun).
