Brandon Stanton's 'Humans of New York' series made such an impact with audiences, it has spawned similarly styled portrait series around the globe. Stanton's original series sought out interesting people on New York's city streets, photographing them for an intimate glimpse into their story. Unsurprisingly, it turns out that there are interesting people all over the world. Facebook pages dedicated to regions of the world and their captivating inhabitants have popped up over the web, offering a candid look into their private lives.

The Facebook pages are more than just an interesting detour to browse through during your day. They are a comprehensive illustration of the melting pot that is our world, encouraging conversation on different cultures, religion, and upbringings. The medium is especially significant, as it symbolizes the inter-connectivity of the technological age.
