Data released by Facebook on Monday analyzed over 35 million people who have "liked" an NFL page. More than one in 10 Americans on Facebook have made their fandom official with a digital like for at least one NFL team. This, Facebook claims represents "one of the most comprehensive samples of sports fanship ever collected."
This map shows how that allegiance breaks down by location, with which teams dominate particular states and counties:
As expected, the map largely corresponds to teams' geographic territories, but there are some interesting anomalies. The Green Bay Packers own Wisconsin fans as well as mot of Alaska. The Pittsburgh Steelers dominate a handful of counties in Nevada and Oregon, and the state of Hawaii . The Dallas Cowboys seem to be truly America's team.
This version of the same map narrows the geographic competition to just the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens, who meet Sunday in Super Bowl XLVII:
Pretty interesting! Personally, I'm a Green Bay Packer fan, and I don't care who wins the Super Bowl. How about you?
