Getting an overview of a large online social net-work and deciding which communities to join is a challenging task for a new user. We propose a method that maps a large network into a smaller graph with two kinds of nodes: a node of the first kind is representative of a community, a node of the second kind is neighbor to a representative and rejects the semantics of that community. Our approach encompasses a learning and ranking algorithm that derives this smaller graph from the original one, and a visualization algorithm that returns a graph layout to the observer. We report on our results on inspecting the network of a folksonomy.
