Top World Cup Players on Facebook: a Visual Aid

Sat, Jul 10, 2010

Facebook, Sports

The World Cup has captured the hearts, minds, and Facebook posts of millions of people around the world. Whether it be poor plays, current matches or just plain favorites, individual players have been praised, scorned and mentioned in passing on Facebook for weeks. Ever wondered who was mentioned the most when? The New York Times is here to help, with a handy infographic that allows you to sort by date and property.

The graphic is easy to read: the larger the image of the player, the more popular said player was on Facebook that day. You can sort by day using the arrows at the top and the sizes of the player images will change according to their popularity. You can also choose which order the players appear in by using the buttons at the bottom: sort by Country, Last name or Facebook mentions. You can play around with the infographic here.
