Join the FlowingData Facebook Group

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

FacebookI just created a FlowingData Facebook group where (I hope) readers can discuss and post interesting goodies about data visualization and statistics. Honestly, I'm only half-expecting like two people to join, but hey, it's a start. I'm a Facebook addict, so I'll be checking it regularly whether anyone joins or not. Please do join though :). I'd like to know who's reading and what fun things you all are up to.

P.S. On a completely unrelated note, on Hadley's request, you can now subscribe to the FlowingData comment feed.
