Faceball

Open Faceball

When Facebook introduced Timeline, many fans of Doctor Who referenced The Doctor's comment from the episode “Blink” in which he said,

“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly...timey-wimey...stuff.”
For those people, I created Faceball: an app that displays your recent Facebook posts as a big ball (of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey content).

The app uses the Facebook API and CSS3 3D transforms to display the Timeball (as opposed to “Timeline”). JavaScript keeps track of each post's longitude and latitude on the sphere, which are then converted to x-, y-, and z-coordinates for the CSS translate3d and z-index.
