[Social Media & World Connectedness]: Facebook World Map Reveals Unexpected Trends Between Friends! #mVILLAGE
What do all those friendships look like on an interactive map? Watch the video above to see the interactive map shared by Facebook Stories — a site dedicated to telling “thought-provoking stories” about the community.
The interactive map by Stamen Design shows each country’s closest friendships and possible reasons for the proximity. For example, Facebook users in Jordan have the most bonds with residents in the Palestinian Territories, Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The map focuses on the historical, economic, linguistic and cultural binds that tie two countries together. The map can also be sorted by common languages spoken around the world.
