Facebook Photos

October 31, 2008

Who’d have thought that our narcissistic obsession with Facebook photos would be so carbon intensive?!

Considering there are now over 10 000 000 000 000 (10 Billion) photos on Stalkbook, and that if the social network were a country, it would be the twelfth most populous, it might not come as a surprise that Facebook uses 10,000 servers and 30,000 PCs. Now those number sound pretty big, and they use a heck of a lot of energy.

And all that just being used to look at those dull pictures of your ex in the university library.

Thanks to Trendspotting.
