The Facebook half billion

In ‘celebration’ of Facebook’s 500 millionth member here is a great visualisation of where people use Facebook around the world. Did anyone know that it was insanely popular in Chile, or that the only major countries it was not the number one social network were Russia, China and Japan?

Its worth a quick plug here not only for the Guardian who are really embracing beautiful data as a concept and for Tableau who have created this fantastic and FREE tool for creating your own data visualisations. If anyone knows of any more visualisation tools please do drop me a comment!
