This isn’t going to be a long post (I know a lot of mine have been too long, lately) but that doesn’t make it any less important. It’s short because the concept is simple. Unfortunately, many are missing out on this easy technique.
There are some “what ifs” that probably shouldn’t be asked and definitely shouldn’t be visualized, but end up getting done anyway. This is a perfect example, taking the huge Facebook population and converting it into an infographic that depicts the “city” as it may look if you squeezed the hundreds of millions of pages and people into one metropolis.
Our friends at GetSatisfaction were up to the task, converting what can only be described as a huge mess into an attractive and coherent visualization that could adorn the walls of geeks across the Internet.
