Facebook friend Web

Friend network of a particular Facebook account. The pink indicates a "mob" of tightly interconnected friends, such as high school or college friends.

Basic Description

The concept of creating a "mob" (like in the image of a friend network), which is establishing conclusions from gigantic data sets, is the essence of "big data." Big data is a new term that describes the revolution in technology and methodologies of analyzing enormous amounts of data (web surfing, for one). This is important because with these methods, we are able to make decisions built on core statistical evidence than on gut feeling.
