The aim of this paper is to study the Moroccan active community behavior on online social networks, firstly the choice of Facebook as OSN is justified by the statistics that ranks it in the first position compared to other OSNs. The lack of a specific database dedicated to Moroccan community requires the implementation of a data acquisition process. In second part, this paper presents macro data connectivity analysis, visualization was made by applying ForceAtlas2 layout algorithm.
