Xkcd’S Updated Map of Online Communities: Farmville is Going to Take Over

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 6, 2010


The webcomic xkcd has just released a new version of the map of online communities. The word is that Farmville is taking over more and more of the world. Well, maybe not, but seriously, Facebook is taking up a lot of space.

A lot of thought went into their new world map, including “statistical inference, random sampling, non-random sampling, a 20,000-cell spreadsheet, emailing, cajoling, tea leaf reading, goat sacrifices” as well as just plain “making stuff up.” Now that’s my kind of cartography!

It’s probably best to view the map in its largest form here. You’ll be surprised at how many fun details there in there.
