A program is disclosed by which historical information about any person will be displayed in a graphical format in a social networking site. The category of different information will be displayed in different tabs. Upon selecting one or more tab, appropriate information will be plotted in a graphical format. User can provide different sharing right in different tabs, accordingly different friends of the user can view different tabs in graphical interface. We can also add ability for a viewer to create a new "tab" for category of information even if content owner did not create the same tab. For instance in the example, there was no tab for automobiles created by owner, but viewer may want to see information sorted that way. So viewer can create a tab and then the content of owner will be populated for that tab (just for the viewer's private use).
