Even my buddy Brian Solis has succumbed to the “social graph” meme:
[from Lifestream of Brian Solis]
Social Graph = Your relationships and the relationships of others within Social Networks.
I guess this trend proves that the term ‘social network’ has become so shopworn that we need something else to refer to the relationships between people instead of ‘social network’, even though that exactly what social networks are. It’s like the guy Todd Luiso plays in Jerry McGuire who doesn’t want to be called a nanny: “Nanny? I prefer child technician.”
All the color has been pushed out of ‘social networks’ by their success, like the carpet in a Las Vegas casino.
