My Instagram network, visualised

A visualisation showing my Instagram network (user 'speedoflife'). The image shows all the users I either follow or am followed by, and the relationships between them. Different colours show different 'modules', or communities, in the network.


Notes: The data was taken from the Instagram API using Python, and loaded into the NetworkX package for analysing networks. It was then exported into the GraphML format, which allowed it to be loaded into the Gephi software and visualised. From Gephi it was exported to PDF, tidied up in Illustrator, and finally exported to PNG format.
