If you’re one to use Facebook, by now you’ve likely noticed miscellaneous maps and movie quizzes blanketing people’s profiles. To date, there are 23,160 of these applications available, and they’re strewn across 22 categories.
Now comes a nifty little chart that ranks the available applications by type. The chart comes from the number-crunching blog FlowingData, which is run by Nathan Yau, a graduate student at the University of California at Los Angeles. It’s probably little surprise that an overwhelming majority of Facebook applications used in profiles fall into the “Just for Fun” category — reaffirming the site’s status as a prime time-waster. —Hurley GoodallReturn to Top
