Here’s a quick look at the people and thinking behind Platlas, the first ever social media platform atlas. Meet the engineers, managers and research analysts that made Platlas for Facebook come to life. See for yourself exactly what all the fuss is about and how you can use Platlas to better understand the countless interactions and connections that are possible on Facebook.
There have been many updates to Facebook over recent weeks, many of which have yet to be reflected in the Facebook Platlas. Below we’ve outlined the major changes and their implications on the future of Platlas.
This is not so much a new feature, but rather a complete revamp and enhancement of the Facebook profile. It’s purpose is to tell the story of the user’s life, as they exist and communicate through content sharing on Facebook. Recent history on the Timeline showcases a broader range and quantity of items. Older points on the Timeline begin to feature less items the farther back the exploration goes, effectively displaying a less, but more important content. Users can influence what content is and is not shown at all points.
Platlas is designed to help you better understand your social networks. Our goal with this project is to introduce a visual perspective on social networks, breaking down the variety of actions that occur and to better educate users and companies alike with the first ever social network ecosystem exploration tool.
