We’ve recently been named a Facebook Media Solutions Partner, and have been working on multiple projects for Facebook from hardware prototypes to data visualization. We’re excited to unveil our latest work: a real-time touchscreen data visualization of the Facebook Trends API, live right now at Facebook’s F8 Developer Conference.

Our visualization is a depersonalized view of the most popular conversations happening around the world on Facebook, using the Trends API to show the top conversations across nine different categories: Sports, Entertainment, Business, Politics, Science, Technology, Health, Disaster, Strange, Celebrity, Crime, and Lifestyle.

It’s a JavaScript based web app that pulls data from three Facebook API’s (Trends, Topic Insights, Graph) and displays them in a beautiful WebGL environment with touchscreen interface. Here’s how it works.
