XKCD Map of the Internet communities2!

Postby dilanski » Wed Oct 06, 2010 1:11 am

This is a link to the large version

XKCD has released a new map of Internet communities today, and I must say it is a scary thing. instead of being based on user numbers it is know based on the amount of activity. many questions will appear when you see it for example:-

Facebook is the largest Internet community?
You-tube is smaller than even twitter?
Is that how big MMO's really are?
HOW THE HELL ON EARTH IS FARMVILLE BIG AS THE WHOLE BLOGOSPHERE?

Edit: oops my bad

This is awesome but I think there are a few things that I think are missing but apart from that amazing must have taken a long time.

This is a rather nicely thought out map.

This map seems to be missing anything of the sort.

Although, I did manage to spot geochashing.

Yes

Console gaming?


I would guess it makes up the size of MMO island in general.
Starcraft II is shown even though its not an MMO. It is an online game so consoles probably don't have any big titles that would be worth making a section.

There are many MMOs that exist and are not shown because they are too small.

Or maybe they just skipped it.



And where the hell is the pr0n continent?


Its a "Map of Online Communities", "Daily social activity".

Amazon and lots of other big places are not here because they are not social destinations.

This is more about communities. There's really no community on pr0n sites aside from the fact that everyone's jacking off to the same pictures, which is as close as all people who watch pr0n should get anyway.

For console gaming I was thinking like Modern Warfare 2, Halo, etc.

Considering that hardly anyone uses brickshelf anymore and everyone goes for moc-pages, then we should be about a 20th th size of them.
