Facebook Data: Suffolk is Giants Country

In Nassau, fans have far less to celebrate.

A new Facebook study shows that Suffolk County is Giants country, much like all of New York City, Westchester, northern and central New Jersey, northeastern Pennsylvania and Fairfield County, Conn.

Only nearby Nassau County breaks the pattern: They're New York Jets fans.

In a post, Sean J. Taylor of the Facebook Data Science team, wrote " At Facebook we have about 35 million account holders in the United States who have Liked a page for one of the 32 teams in the league, representing one of the most comprehensive samples of sports fanship ever collected. Put another way, more than 1 in 10 Americans have declared their support for an NFL team on Facebook."

Facebook also released data on the most common fan connections. If you're a Jets fan, chances are friends support the Giants, Patriots, Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers or Philadelphia Eagles.

Here is the full Facebook post.
