The powerful computational knowledge engine known as Wolfram Alpha added a new feature called Facebook Report. The report uses a Facebook app to gain access to your Facebook data and presents it in a neat visually rich fashion. What kind of data you ask? Well, I now know that 60.8% of my friends are married, my most common friend name is Ryan, my average post length is 4.75 words and my biggest commenter is my Mother.
The application starts off with some basic info like who has the most mutual friends, the various countries my friends are in and the fact that I was born on a Wednesday. The report also noted how many pictures and status updates I’ve posted in the past year, and which have received the most Likes and comments.
The report is separated into 21 categories with subset data in each category. The color-coded friend network map has quite a few combination choices for viewing the data.
The report is fun, informative and worth a look. To give it a try head to wolframalpha.com and type in “Facebook report”, or just click this link. Allow the app access to Facebook, setup a Wolfram account and load the page again.
