This is a project completed by Rachel Binx and Zach Watson. It illustrates how content is shared on facebook (linked here). Each visualization represents content starting from a single person (center) and branches off as this content is shared, and ends up becoming this hairy, radial, set of fingers. Different colors correspond to different genders, and the colors get whiter as time passes. I like the way that this project includes time – particularly the fact that it is clear how fast things are being shared – and the intuitiveness of the branching model. It is interesting to see these fingers plume out and spiral off.
