Facebook World Map Reveals Unexpected Trends Between Friends [VIDEO].

Social networks and mobile technology have transformed the way people communicate. This week, Facebook announced there are 1 billion active users, who have created 140.3 billion Facebook connections on the eight-year-old platform.

The interactive map by Stamen Design shows each country’s closest friendships and possible reasons for the proximity. For example, Facebook users in Jordan have the most bonds with residents in the Palestinian Territories, Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

 

The map focuses on the historical, economic, linguistic and cultural binds that tie two countries together. The map can also be sorted by common languages spoken around the world.

 

“Immigration is one of the strongest links that seems to bind these Facebook neighbors, as thousands of people pour over borders or overseas, seeking jobs or fleeing violence, and making new connections and maintaining old friendships along the way,” wrote Mia Newman, the author of the interactive map post.

 

What are the most surprising connections between countries that share strong Facebook connections? Tell us in the comments.

Social Media, Politics: The 25 Global Top Leaders On Twitter And Their Social Media Shortfalls

Twiplomacy is the first-ever global study of world leaders on Twitter. The governments of almost two-thirds of the 193 UN member countries have a presence on Twitter: 45% of the 264 accounts analysed are personal accounts of heads of state and government, but just 30 world leaders tweet themselves and very few on a regular basis.

This study shows that while the social network invites direct interaction between users, few world leaders take advantage of this opportunity to develop connections. Almost half of world leader accounts analysed don’t follow any of their peers. A quarter of world leaders and governments follow President Barack Obama and the White House, but @BarackObama and the @WhiteHouse have established mutual Twitter relations with only three other world leaders: Norway’s Jens Stoltenberg, the UK Prime Minister and Russia’s Dmitry Medvedev.

European Union President Herman van Rompuy (@euHvR) is the best connected world leader with 11 mutual follows. Australian Prime Minister @JuliaGillard is the second most connected world leader. Many governments use Twitter as an automated news feed from their website or Facebook page. As of 1 July 2012 the 264 accounts enjoyed a combined following of 51,990,656.

Imagine The World Without The Internet – Infographic

Steve Carrell may be seeking a friend for the end of the world, but here at Mashable, we’re more concerned with the end of the Internet.

Can you imagine it? Instead of an iPad, you’d be clutching a weighty $1,200 Encyclopedia Brittanica as you rock yourself to sleep. And instead of tweeting with pals halfway around the world, we’d be licking stamps that would total $6.3 trillion in the United States alone. We’re cringing at the thought.

Online Education created this graphic detailing the nightmare that would be the world without Internet. Sure, we’re grateful to the World Wide Web for giving us all the joy of narcoleptic cats and the controversy of @Sweden. But evidently, what we really have to be thankful for is how many jobs the Internet has created. Facebook alone has created 450,000 jobs, and the Internet establishes 2.6 jobs for every job it renders obsolete. And we all know that cat videos are that much more enjoyable to watch when you’re supposed to be working.
