NFL Support on Facebook, Visualized
"Across all of Facebook’s US users, around 35 million have Liked a page for one of the 32 teams in the NFL. Wait, stop: that’s a staggering figure. That means 1 in 10 Americans has declared their support for a team via Facebook—probably one of the most comprehensive samples of sports fanship data ever collected. […] There are some states which are divided into regions by teams. Florida has three teams—the Tampa Bay Bucs, Miami Dolphins, and the Jacksonville Jaguars—and Facebook users there seems fractured in their support, with some counties even defecting to teams from the North. […] Some teams, like the Steelers, Cowboys, and Packers, seem to transcend geography, with pockets of fans all over the country. On the other end of the spectrum, the Jets have to share New York with the Giants and are only the most popular team for a single stronghold county in Long Island." via Gizmodo
