Hi everyone! 🌎 🌍 🌏 At Shopify, we rally around the Black Friday Cyber Monday (BFCM) weekend because it’s a significant moment for our 600,000+ merchants. Black Friday Cyber Monday is no longer the exclusive domain of big box retailers - in 2017, Shopify merchants generated $1 billion in sales over the four days. To show this phenomenon in real time, we’ve revamped our annual live sales map. The map provides a one-of-a-kind view into events as they unfold throughout BFCM, from granular details to global trends. Explore the live map to see everything from the distance far-flung international shipments have traveled, the rate of sales per minute across Shopify, or, even a flash sale in progress. This map was built using WebGL and three.js to create something that is interactive and able to handle all of the data flowing through it. We hope you enjoy it! Steve

@stevenwhatevr Hey! Was Jacky Chiu involved with this at all? I know he helped build 'live view' for merchants, is this similar?

@evan_farrell Similar! The Live View exists inside a merchant's shop so they can view sales for their business in real time. We are big fans of real time!

Absolutely love this! So cool to see what's happening across the Shopify network. We did something similar at GoSquared a few years back if you like your 3D Globes 🌎
