As a Facebook Media Solutions Partner we were given unique access to the new Facebook Trends API, which we used to create our latest work for the social network: a real-time touchscreen data visualization of the Facebook Trends API, used at Facebook’s 2015 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.
- Visitors see a universe of trending topics
- They click into a Trend
- They can then tap on posts to see contributing content
- Visitors can also browse and filter by category
Check out some more photos of the visualization in action at F8 below.
