facesWhen you load pictures from all 1.27 billion Facebook users and counting on one page, what does it look like? Sort of like an old TV that can’t get a signal.

Natalia Rojas, a freelance creative technologist, reduced every profile picture into a single-colored pixel on her app/website The Faces of Facebook.

“At the beginning, I thought to take all the photos and make them really small,” Rojas tells ABC News. “But I realized that no matter what you do, you’ll get this noisy thing you see.”

You can zoom in and see everybody’s pics. When you connect via Facebook (in the top right of the site), you can search for yourself and friends and see what number you are.
