Map your friends Facebook in few clicks

You know who your Facebook friends, but you can visualize where they are? You may be surprised when you see "where are my friends to be" Google Maps mashup with all their locations identified, showing how far away your friends really are.

We've seen other Facebook/Google Maps mashups before, but this is no different from other friend radio operators. It's fast, it only takes a few seconds click in, and suddenly she dropping little contacts around the world, showing you exactly where your buddies. Says one of its developers, Ajay Mehta:

"Amazingly, there are not many applications like this. There are a few that were very weak and eventually cancelled years ago. They did this visual or, most lame loading bar or something similar and comparison of laggy/slow. We have friends pop on the map in a cool, Interactive way (which was the hardest part to hack together). "

Mehta, researcher, College Freshmen Wesley Zhao and Dan shipper developed mashup that gives you a quick way to remind yourself that you're not in Kansas anymore, and are not your friends. Unless of course you all live in Kansas.

These infectious enthusiasm a frosh. Future Zuckerbergs?
