  • Patent number: 9418117
    Abstract: A method, system, and non-transitory computer readable medium for displaying relevant messages of a conversation graph. A reverse chronological stream of messages broadcasted to a recipient account of a messaging platform is received. The set of authoring accounts having a predefined graph relationship with the recipient account. Among the stream of messages, a message determined to be a part of a relevant conversation is identified. Additional content associated with the conversation is then inserted into the stream. A client displaying the stream displays the conversation related content with one or more display elements depicting relationships among messages of the conversation.
