I haven’t visited Wolfram Alpha in years, but I have fond memories. It was a major contributor to my passing score in multivariable calculus. Thankfully, my lack of patronage hasn’t slowed down the good work of physicist and founder Mr. Stephen Wolfram. Today the team at Wolfram announced another scientific breakthrough. Wolfram Alpha is now capable providing a full social analysis of your facebook activity. That’s right! Think you’re a social outcast? Now we can back that up with HARD data.They are calling it a facebook report. You can get your report by visiting the site and typing facebook report into the search bar.
The website will redirect you to facebook and ask for your permission to gather data and build your report, but the resulting explosion of graphs, drill down data, and infographics is totally worth it.
After pouring over my report, I’m convinced that I now know more about myself than should be allowed by law. Most prevalent posting period? Wednesdays at midnight. Furthest friend? Malyasia. Biggest fan? Of course– Hi Mom! Knowing about yourself is great, but the real star of the report is the friends network graph. Do you have a secret stalker? Do you know which of your friends are “social insiders” which are “social outsiders?” Here’s my word cloud. Can anyone guess what life event I committed to earlier this year? 🙂
