Mapping The Social Media Global Clusters:

 Social Media cartographer Eric Fischer has created this map illustrating physical movement and the movement of tweets: green denotes physical movement; purple is @replies from someone in one location to someone in another; white is a combination of the two.
 According to a 2010 study, about 21% of Indonesians are on Twitter, making them the most Twitter-addicted nation. Possible reasons for this might include their large population (nearly 240 million), cheap access to mobile devices and English as a commonly spoken language.


This  is a map of Europe which is shown by  clusters of users using  Flickr  and users  that are tweeting




This  is a map of North America  and the clusters shows  Flickr  users density vs  and Tweeters


Eric Fischer
 has created these great comparisons of geotagged content from Flickr and Twitter. The red dots are locations of Flickr photographs, the blue dots are locations of tweets and the white dots are locations that have been posted to both. From these maps, you can see the different areas where these two networks have been used, giving an idea of how they’ve spread across the world.
