PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 30 (UPI) -- A website allows those curious about fellow Facebook users to zoom in on each and every one, even Mark Zuckerberg, founder of the U.S.-based social network.

The Faces of Facebook says it isn't breaking any Facebook privacy rules "because we don't store anyone's private information, pictures or names," wrote Natalia Rohas, a freelance creative technologist who developed The Faces of Facebook as a personal project, on the website's information page.

"We've just found a harmless way to show the 1,271,947,673 Facebook profile pictures and organize them in a chronological order," Rohas said.

To find out who's where in the Facebook membership hierarchy, The Faces of Facebook visitors can connect to Facebook to find out which face number they are and "where in the gallery your friends are, and which of them was the first to joining Facebook," the instructions say.

The site's homepage looks like static -- a myriad of colorful dots. Clicking on a blob of dots and the page drills down to thumbnails of Facebook users in numerical order of when they registered. To get past this point, the curious visitor must log in to Facebook.
