Post Something You Find Interesting to Our Facebook Group

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

FacebookI started a FlowingData Facebook group a couple of weeks ago, and I guessed that about two people would join. I was slightly off, and we’re up to 92 now (plus me), which makes me happy. Thank you for making me happy you 92 people :).

I do have one more favor to ask of you. If there’s anything you find interesting – data sets, visualization, art pieces, analyses, posts from your own blogs – please do post to our group. My hope is that FlowingData will grow into more of a community than just me on my soap box. As much as I like hearing myself talk, I like listening to what others have to say a lot more.

If you haven’t joined the FlowingData Facebook group yet, I highly encourage it. We’re from all areas of the data world from statistics to design, computer science, to education, psychology, economics, and many others, which makes for very good conversation.
