For those wondering what it would look like to gather together in one room all the information and pictures found on Facebook, the project 'fbFaces' by Joern Roeder and Jonathan Pirnay has the answer. This massive collection of Facebook profile pictures is the foundation of the project. There are 100,000 Facebook profile pictures collected with the purpose to question and explore the immensity of personal data found on the site, and thus the Internet.

This wallpaper symbolizes the role of the social media networks in people's life. The creator explains, "fbFaces is an attempt to visualize the incredible amount of data and images that we are daily overwhelmed by, so that we can neither realize our own selectivity nor consider the amount of data perceived."

fbFaces represents a reflection how these networks are used by subscribers without sometimes understanding or taking into consideration the implications it has on society and on themselves. Stats for Populated Social Media Decals Trending: Older & Average
