World relations - what data can show

Network of the friends on Facebook (On sample dataset, complete picture will be really amazing)



This is  something really interesting and very useful for world not just for tracking  friendship but proceeding to peace actions, taking over the poverty, avoid disease outbreaks and a lot many things.

Something like this with data from all such digital data resources can give governments some very important clues for actions towards development and it isn't a threat to privacy at all!

Similar relations from Facebook, twitter and Linkedin will also give information about the personal and business relations and those will be very useful to marketers.
