A new website showcases profile photos of Facebook users, 1.2 billion of them, in an interactive clickable collage. Visit the website, Faces of Facebook (www.thefacesoffacebook.com), and the first thing that shows up is a sea of black and white dots (like noise on analog TV known as static), each signifying a Facebook profile that pops up when your mouse hovers over it.
Here's why the project was born:"Because there we are, all mixed up: large families, women wearing burkas, many Leo Messis, people supporting same-sex marriages or r4bia, Chihuahuas, Indian Gods, tourists pushing the leaning Tower of Pisa, selfies, newborns, Ferraris, studio black and white portraits, a lot of weddings but zero divorces, ID photos, faces framed in hearts, best friends, manga characters, politic logos, deep looks, love messages, eyes, memes, smiles, sweet grandparents and some not-yet-censured pictures."
Find yourself: The site also lets you 'connect' with your own Facebook account to let you find your face # and see where your face appears in the vast density of profiles. Connecting your Facebook account to the app also highlights your friends on the map as larger white dots, letting you see: Who joined first, and who joined last.
