Infographic of the Day

One of the many reasons that Fast Company is my new favorite magazine is a little thing I discovered on their website last night called the "Infographic of the Day". Being a designer, and loving infographics, I was pretty stoked.

This infographic in particular, designed by Colin Pinegar, stood out to me. It's a 3-D infographic displaying the designer's relationships to his facebook friends.

He represented each of his "friends" with a model of his bust, changing the color of the bust to represent how close the friendship is in real life.  Purple represents his closest friends, tinting to pink the farther the connection is. Seeing hundreds of facebook friends displayed like this really makes you realize who your true friends are.
