The “Face” of Facebook


Imagine 1.27 billion faces aggregated on a single webpage. That daunting task is exactly what “The Faces of Facebook” has accomplished, arranging every Facebook profile picture in chronological order on a one page. Any user can find their picture and their friends within the page, and it shows who amongst your friends joined the site soonest. It starts as a graphic that looks a lot like white noise, but as the page zooms in, you can see the millions of faces of the users of Facebook.

The webpage does not violate privacy settings, because it only accesses the publicly viewable sections of users profile pages. The webpage is accessible as an app for your profile.

What sparks our fire: Amongst the billions of us, our faces are still distinguishable.

Can you find your face? Where is it located on the page?
