The Map of the World, according to Facebook

I just saw this, and I thought it was too crazy not to share.

"The above map of the world, drawn by Facebook data structuring intern Paul Butler using connections between 10 million Facebook friends (full-size link), is interesting enough in itself until you realize that all of the country borders are entirely drawn using Facebook friend connections too. Even if the world was dark and totally unmapped, Facebook could produce a remarkably good approximation of most of its continents’ boundaries, and even the borders of some countries."  - GeekoSystem

That is pretty cool. Random facts can be so interesting!
