Inside Analysis

Cool Data Viz: Holistic Systems

This visualization shows the geographical locations of Facebook friends on a Google map.

There are taxonomy based filters for all the other information that they share such as books, sports, activities, music and work history. You can use this to see what “interests” are most popular and connect with friends who have similar interests. 

The app is built entirely in client side javascript making use of the Facebook API, Facebook Query Language (FQL) and the Google Maps API. 

It’s cool because it shows you things about your friends that were previously invisible and allows you to make connections that you otherwise might not have made. To use this visualization app for your own friends, please visit the following link: http://apps.facebook.com/wheretheynow
