Do people post more when they travel?


In our information design course we were given small tasks to look at information design in the real world and seek opportunities for improvement. After which we redesigned the object or data given and critically analysed different aspects on information design.


At the end of the week we were asked to look at facebook and gather interesting data from it which we would later visualize. After looking through and analysing the different information I could gather from facebook I decided to create a visualisation on people’s posting trends during travelling.

I began to question why many people like to share more about their travel plans than what they are doing at home. I also looked at whether their occupation effected their decisions on how they posted their information and at what frequency. This led me to realize who was posting the most during their travels, with an open question of – Why?
