MetaMe Applet Explanation: Mosaic

Our MetaMe Facebook App was an amalgamation of smaller apps, the most (probably only) successful among them being Mosaic.

Mosaic

The app uses a C# backend, passing a list of urls to the server, from which it pulls the smallest possible profile pic of the user’s friends, and the largest possible version of the user’s profile picture.
The pics are then assembled into order, and each individual pixel is colorized to make it look like the large profile picture is laid over the arrangement.
