Google Maps of Your Facebook Friends


MapMyFriends lets you view all your Facebook friends on a Google Map.

To create a map of your Facebook friends all you need to do is sign in to the map with your Facebook account and your friend map is created automatically. The map uses the Facebook profile pictures of your friends to indicate their location.

If you click on any of the mapped profile pictures you can click through to visit that friend's Facebook profile.


This Facebook application also maps all of your Facebook friends and, in addition, extracts other interesting facts from your friends' profiles.

On installing this application to Facebook you are presented with a Google Map displaying your friends' locations indicated by their profile picture. Under the map there is a series of tables informing you about how many of your friends are male or female, how many are single or in a relationship and how many of your friends are conservative and how many are liberal etc.

The application gives you a good overview of the geography of your Facebook network, as well as an insight into its political, religious and relationship leanings.

Where My Friends Be

Where My Friends Be is a nice Google Maps app to visualise the locations of all your Facebook friends. To create a map you just need to connect your Facebook account and in a matter of seconds you are presented with a Google Map showing the geographical distribution of your social network.

Friends Density on Facebook

Friends Density is another nice way to visualise the geographical distribution of your Facebook friends, this time in the form of a heatmap.

Once you sign up to the app in Facebook you can view your friends on a Google Map. You can even read your friends' latest status updates directly from the map.

All of these programs either don't exist or don't work. Don't waist your time.
