How to split up the USA using Facebook data

Posted by on 9 Feb, 2010 in My Stream | 0 comments


This is really interesting… Someone has analysed Facebook data to discover which parts of the USA are most connected to each other. Based on what little I know of the USA, these clusters do seem to represent the different cultural divides within the country. It’s amazing what you can find from social network data.

Make sure you check out the application too, which lets you see which countries are most connected, what their favourite celebrities/topics are, and their most common names.

Update: This article on ReadWriteWeb is well worth a read too, and explores the subject in more depth.
