As an exercise to better understand the traceroute terminal command, I used mapbox and an IP lookup API to track the locations of the routers and servers used in my frequently visited websites. Unfortunately facebook is among them (marked as the death icon), as well as gmail (rocketship icon) and my personal website (markered with a sleeping icon since I need sleep). In the javascript console, I'm logging the complete json returned by the IP API, including the company name, city of the server, and order in which it was sent.
