Analyse your own Facebook data

Stephen Wolfram, founder of Wolfram Alpha has developed a tool where you can analyse your own Facebook data.  He explains:

And today I’m excited to announce that we’ve developed a first round of capabilities in Wolfram|Alpha to let anyone do personal analytics with Facebook data. And this is just the beginning; over the months to come, particularly as we see about how people use this, we’ll be adding more and more capabilities.

It’s pretty straightforward to get your personal analytics report: all you have to do is type “facebook report” into the standard Wolfram|Alpha website.

Data available includes:

  • where your friends are located and percentage by country
  • age distribution of your friends (if they’re honest about their age on Facebook!)
  • gender distribution of friends
  • activity included posted links, photos and more
  • most active days and times
  • post stats including total comments and likes
  • a word cloud with your most used words
  • a visual representation of your connections with friends and mutual friends and more

It’s well worth having a look at the breakdown of all of the information you’ve posted. Read more here.
