Hi Sam,

would love to hear if you used any of our graph algorithms with your social networking data?

We've been looking at some of the APOC calls in geeky eagerness to use them, but actually have found great use out just simple cypher on well architected graph data.
Many of the "contacts of contacts" type of queries that would normally be difficult are now trivial in cypher/neo4j!

We use the TTL functions for expiring of invitations, and some of the shortest path tools. We're likely to start using more and more of the geolocation functionality too, which I'm excited to work on!
