It’s one of the quirks of the social media age: with a free afternoon and a little web savvy, you can track down everyone you’ve ever met. Artist Carolina Andreoli took it one step further, ranking all her friends by importance and graphing them onto a single page. (See the big version here.)

The colors correspond to where she met them—the big blue stripes are all UK, the orange are from Brazil, and so on—while the little gray lines on the bottom refer to how much she’s kept in touch. It’s pretty spectacular to see it all mapped out…but let’s keep this one as far away from Facebook as we can.
