Ok i decided to change title of my blog from “Free and Open Source ” to ”whats on your mind” yes the first one was good focussed one on one topic but i felt and that what i do is more than just FOSS. This gives me the freedom to write here instead of places like Facebook or Twitter or Identi.ca . Ok whats on the plate to start with the new title “whats on your mind ” yes you got it right its been flicked from Facebook , thanks to there policy changes they were in News for past few weeks , actually i really like it so does so many of millions of Facebook Fans .
i started digging and try to find out the social maps which exists and the connections i can see , obviously FB was the tool of choice to begin with i hit upon my first search with Nexus which has shut down ;-( , but it gave me enough apps using which i can do pretty much what i wanted here are the list of applications on Facebook which mapped social connections not only they did that they were digging more into the connections.
i am sure there are more ways to dig in with the Graph API .
For all those people who are afraid after seeing the web of connections and having privacy concern there is no straighforward way to deactivate your Facebook account , deactivating actually does not help you in deleting all the data , to actually wipe all the info you need to go to this link Delete Facebook account
for all the other folks who do not want to delete the account here is a scanner to test your reclaimprivacy privacy setting on Facebook.
nice reads on this topic

After attending the #WCI met and heard many pro bloggers and developers from the field of blogging , the guy who really was impressive was OM of gigaom fame. He was too good after listening to him and learning from his kind words i have decided to change the line on my Blog from
Change is certain what is your Foss Startegy!! to Change is Certain what about You!! sounds easy and makes it more personal .
