Where can you find Idealists? A look at our worldwide traffic

Ever wonder who else is using Idealist?

We do, so our developers put together a real-time visualization of our traffic around the world.


Our traffic from 2 p.m. today.

The height of each bar represents the number of visitors we have at any one time. This image is from 2 p.m. NYC time.

You can see that most of our visitors are coming from the East Coast of the U.S., while the West Coast is just starting the day.

We’re also getting quite a bit of traffic from Colombia, Peru, and Argentina to our Spanish-language site, Idealistas.org. It’s early evening in much of Europe and Africa, so we still have some visitors from France, Germany, Ghana, and Cameroon.

To see what our traffic looks like right now, take a look at the visualization.

I think it’s really inspiring to see so many people from around the world who are looking for opportunities to make a difference.

Where are you from? Say hello in the comments.

Special thanks to Gregory Haynes for making this visualization.

    Hi! Checking out Idealist from NYC… Yup, so I am totally contributing towards that high bar for the East Coast. :) Pardon my audacity to point out that unless you are referring to “Columbia” University, I believe you meant “Colombia” in this article. Common mistake, but it makes quite a difference. And I also spotted another odd little something where it says “to see our what a traffic looks like right now…”. I can understand how a stickler like me can galvanize annoyance, but I couldn’t help myself. I must also add that I like what you guys present and provide to visitors on your website. :)
