Dev.to is so cool that I can't stop thinking about it.
So today I'd like to introduce you to the new feature suggestion: The Social Networking Map!
I think that programming is about communicating with each other and it's always interesting to know what area your mesh is covering, so here is the proposal:
Add new section to settings page with a map of globe, where 3 different type of connections could be viewed:
- who is following you
- who are you following
- and (probably) network of tags
Giving that it is possible to easily convert that numbers (following\followers) into the beautiful map.
There are different possible suited types of map, to name some of it:
- To display connections: Faux-3D Arcs: http://bl.ocks.org/dwtkns/4973620
- To display density: https://beta.observablehq.com/@mbostock/d3-choropleth
Color of the lines could be taken from the user's color preference.
