The Facebook Map – best or worst internship task?

An intern at Facebook got the job of plotting where people live relative to their Facebook friends. Each line connects cities with pairs of friends. The brighter the line, the more friends between those cities.

Quite a lot of places missing, but most noticeably China, Russia, Central Africa and Western Australia.  Must remember not to move to any of those places in the near future, I couldn’t Facebook stalk my neighbours!!

I haven’t read the intern’s blog yet, but how long did this take him and where do you even start?! Me thinks he didn’t do this with a real map and string!  Not sure whether I would prefer this job or filing!!
