Placebook – worldwide Facebook user distribution mapped

Zdenek Hynek and Martin Pulicar from Masaryk University, Czech Republic have put together this beautifully designed interactive infographic showing Facebook user distribution around the globe.

Placebook. Facebook stats mapped

Styled in the familiar dark on light blue Facebook colours, the application lets you display various Facebook facts and figures for each country on a map and in chart form – number of users, age break downs and percentage of people using the social network. Best of all, log-in to Facebook and see statistics for your friends, with their locations plotted across the map.

The project was created for the 2010 NACIS Student Web Mapping Competition. Unsurprisingly it won in the interactive category.
