This is Brazil, On Facebook.

That’s supposed to reference the old but famous ‘don’t do drugs’ commercial (this is your brain on drugs). While I’m not a Facespacer or a Mybooker, I do find the concept of socialness viewed alone through a piece of hardware to be quite interesting. The picture below is a product of a Facebook engineer who decided to graph social connections worldwide via Facebook. I cut out (I mean, I only included) South America but you can see the whole world, too. Each blue line represents a “friendship”.
