reading: Facebook connections visualized

A facebook intern rendered this wonderful picture from connections in their data base. The only thing I think he got wrong is the meaning of the word “friendship” in facebook context… but then it really seems the Americans are awefully quick with calling someone their friend, and just about as fast with losing them; it’s not the very possibly life-long connection that takes years and years to form it’s over here in Germany. Meh, whatever, it’s still a nice image.
