Recently Joe Corr showed us an example of the facebook api he’d been playing with. It allowed users to login via the facebook login button, then grab interesting information with the return data. In class we were playing around with several ideas:
- What if facebook could predict who you’ll be hooking up with after you break up with someone?
- What if facebook could predict who you’re most likely cheating with?
- What if we could predict how has a crush on you?
I came up with an idea to simply take the numbers that represent you i.e. your birthdate, facebook id, age etc. and run them through the Wolfram API to see what interesting information we might extract.
As it turns out, some of the most interesting information has nothing to do with numbers but rather information regarding your name.
Anyway, check it out!
