No it's not an xkcd thing.

It's REALLY amazing, and I especially like the random lines drawn to single parts somewhere in the ocean, where some single or more guys have a computer, it's a really nice thing
And apparently people in the Sahara desert also have Facebook...

High Res.

Not that much to discuss, it's mostly just "Hey look, this is cool"

If it wasn't for the Facebook logo in the corner, that would bake a bitchin' destop.

Saw that on Reddit last night. I thought it was only a matter of time before it hit here.

I think it's pretty cool, it really shows how certain people in certain parts of the world love social networking more than others. The only thing that pisses me off is the bigass Facebook logo.

I just noticed that Russia apparently has almost NOTHING to do with facebook.

I was like watching the map and suddenly I noticed a pretty big part of the damn world missing.

lol.

Wow that's pretty awesome. I found it interesting how it basically drew out the shapes of continents and countries based on their facebook usage, and essentially connecting the dots. It really shows you what parts of the world either don't access it or don't care about it.

How come only the East of America is as bright as it is, whereas the West isn't? Dunno if it's a $$ thing or facebook isn't as accessible there or what?

Awesome concept, though.

Yeah, Russia is a massive social networking market, however it's absolutely dominated by a locally hosted site called Vkontakt, or some hit like that. I remember reading an article about a US anti-piracy lobbyist group trying to get the site taken down for hosting music files openly.

"Vkontakte" which is basically EXACTLY facebook, but then with a little more spam and money oriented campaign.

Becuase that's where most of Australia's population is. The Outback doesn't have that many people.

I didn't know that the majority of Australia has a very low population density. Lets base my entire intelligence around not knowing that fact, okay? Sound good?

What would be even more interesting is a map like that based on percentages of people in any given area with Facebook, Myspace, Orkut, Vkontakt, and whatever other social networking sites are out there.
