Facebook Friendship Map Visualizes Connections Around The World

Paul Butler, an intern with the Facebook data infrastructure engineering team, has created a gorgeous map of the world that illustrates the human connections on Facebook and the distances those relationships span.
"I was interested in seeing how geography and political borders affected where people lived relative to their friends," Butler wrote in a Facebook post accompanying the map. "I wanted a visualization that would show which cities had a lot of friendships between them."
