Just a quick post of two links about datamining Facebook:
- Pete Warden’s post: How to split up the US
- Marshall Kirkpatrick’s post: The Man Who Looked Into Facebook’s Soul
Pete’s divisions of the US are interesting to consider.
(I haven’t read all the commentary yet, but it’s clear that Mr. Warden is needing some pop culture data to help him understand why Ashley is a popular name in the South and why Twilight is popular in Utah. I think the answers are fairly self-evident.)
