9. Facebook: The All-in-One Wonder > Visualizing Facebook Data

Visualizing Facebook Data

This section lays down some templates and introduces some good starting points for analyzing and visualizing Facebook data. If you’ve been following along, you now have the basic tools you need to get at anything the platform can provide. The types of exercises we’ll explore in this section include:

  • Visualizing all the mutual friendships in your social network

  • Visualizing the mutual friendships within specific groups and for arbitrary criteria, such as gender

  • Building a simple data-driven game that challenges you to identify friends based on where they live now and their hometowns

The list of possibilities goes on and on, and with the necessary boilerplate intact, you’ll have no trouble customizing the scripts we’ll write to solve a variety of other problems.
