Question: Is there a way to create a graph similar to the one below?

enter image description here

Some ideas:

  • Each business is a point on the plane $[0,1] \times [0,1]$.

  • Each point on the plane can be represented as an image in Mathematica (I assume).

Attempt: Perhaps a good place to start is ListPlot

ListPlot[{1, 1, -1} -> {"Freindster", "LinkedIn", "Interface Software"}]

Here's not clear how to (i) add pictures as labels; (ii) add commentary and (iii) let the X-axis range from $-1$ to $1$ as in the LinkedIn graph.

  • $\begingroup$ Wow, Friendster? And it was in beta? Is this picture from the 1960's or something? $\endgroup$ – march Aug 8 '18 at 23:26
  • $\begingroup$ @march, 2004 if I'm reading ourstory.linkedin.com correctly. $\endgroup$ – Brett Champion Aug 9 '18 at 1:32
  • $\begingroup$ george, you might want to post an image without the "CONFIDENTIAL" marking. $\endgroup$ – kglr Aug 9 '18 at 6:20
  • $\begingroup$ @kglr May be the "CONFIDENTIAL" marking as one of question's requirements. $\endgroup$ – Anton Antonov Aug 9 '18 at 12:58
