Maps from xkcd

Categories: Categorie 1 | Étiquettes : , ,

Actually no stick figures this time, but two maps of social media…  The maps are based on estimated size of membership from various sources.  The second map is more complex, be sure to check out the big high resolution map (see below).  What a lot of changes!  Whatever happened to MySpace???  ( in the "charred wasteland of abandoned social networks", I suppose) — but no, it's still there, on the southwestern borders of Facebook next to LinkedIn.  I like the way he contextualized the internet with respect to the Spoken Language (where does he get his data, one wonders?) and email + sms. 

One from 2007 (click here to see on xkcd's site):

Online_communities_small

And another from 2011 (click here to see the big hi rez view)

Online_communities_2
