The Evolution of Facebook

Matt McKeon, a developer at IBM, looked at the timeline that the EFF published of Facebook’s privacy defaults, and how they’ve changed since the social networking site’s inception in 2005.  Disappointed that the timeline was written, rather than visual, he decided to create the visual himself.  Which he has done to great effect.  He explains that he derived the data for the chart from Facebook’s terms of service agreements over the years.

Unfortunately, I can’t embed this, so here’s a link, and by the way, the animation won’t work in IE.
