Just saying the word “EdgeRank” in some circles can incite a visceral reaction. Skeptics believe it is a way to squeeze Facebook brand reach even further. Less skeptical people may think Facebook is filtering only the best content for their users. Some people just don’t care.

No matter how you feel about Facebook EdgeRank, I hope we can all agree that this is an awesome infographic. While Batman might not be the first fictional character you would expect to bring some clarity to Facebook’s nefarious algorithm, after you see this you may want Batman to explain more things (linear regression, anyone?).

I thought this was a very clever explanation of Facebook EdgeRank – let me know what you think.

I aspire to give people something to think about rather than tell them what to do. My favorite Google Alert is "social media research," I am increasingly compelled by Gen Z, and I appreciate good writers agnostic of where they write. At one time I was Kred's 12th most influential social media blogger and Klout's most influential person on the topic of David Hasselhoff. Transplant from Seattle living in Cincinnati. Haven't entirely adopted the local sports teams yet.

Love it. Anything can be made understandable and interesting when Batman is involved.
