This is really neat:

If you’re a LinkedIn user, you already know the power of your professional network.

What if you could visualize what your network looks like? Would your connections form clusters or groups? Wouldn’t it be great if you could see the way all your connections are related to each other? Even be able to identify the elusive hubs between your professional worlds?

Now, you can! This week, we’re introducing a new LinkedIn Labs product, called InMaps

What a great idea!

If you’re a LinkedIn user, you can set up your own map by going to the InMaps section of LinkedIn Labs.

My network is at the top, and it’s pretty neat how effectively it slices up people – the big blue group on the right are MBA connections, the purple group are old work colleagues, the group in green are my London friends, the light blue are one set of family members, and the maroon are another group of family members.

Not particularly earth-shattering, but pretty cool stuff nonetheless.
