From antique cartography to personalized logs, lots of beautiful connections mapped out this week! We also found visualizations that make sense of mythological relationships, suss out the virality of content, and a font like none other.
In this graphic, we look at five popular social networks from around the globe. The percentages indicate how much of a country’s population is actively using the service, illustrating that they are hefty competition for even the most popular of America’s homegrown platforms.
