We will present a new tool to extract the complete account information from social networks, like Facebook, at this years’ ACSAC.
More information on the social snapshot project are also available here:  Social Snapshots: Digital Forensics for Online Social Networks
Currently I am looking for ways to visualize extracted data from Facebook. Gephi is a graph visualization tool that looks very promising for creating fancy graphs. Below are two graphs I created with Gephi on my Facebook data (extracted with a social snapshot of my account).

The first graph outlines how my Facebook Friends are connected with each other – the bigger the Graph nodes – the more connected is a given friend with other FB friends of mine. The second graph outlines who tags whom the most – on pictures amongst my FB friends.
