Yahoo reports that Facebook has made an interactive composite image of its nearly 1.3 billion users:
"Relax. We're not breaking any Facebook privacy rule because we don't store anyone's private information, pictures or names," [programmer Natalie] Rojas writes. "We've just found a harmless way to show 1,260,866,093 Facebook profile pictures and organize them in chronological order"
You can click here to see the composite and zoom in anywhere to see individual faces. If you move to the top left corner, you can see the earliest faces on Facebook, starting with Mark Zuckerberg at #1.
