@SaneIT Exactly, so. You can't accept everything you see at face value.

@Ariella I've heard of some older FB users but this one in particular I know pretty well and he's no where near 100, I suspect that his account probably skewed all of the categories on the results page. I guess that's something to think about when looking at any data that comes out of FB.  You're going to have to throw some of the data away because it's clearly garbage either due to humor in the case of my friend, errors which I also saw or people hiding information which I can't say I noticed but I'm sure it happens.

@Louis  I'm not trying to be an advocate for FB. Personally, I much prefer G+. But, as of now, there are still quite a substantial number of businesses that try to reach their markets through the biggest social network. They would be interested in this form of metric. That's what SumAll offers them -- a way to come up with the a figure for ROI on social media effort.

Hi Ariella,   I have not played with these types of apps and really have no intention of doing so.  I think it is well documented my stance on FB, but I don't disparage those who find it interesting.  I just don't feel the need to know this information, so in that sense it would be a waste of time for me.

 

Though I do like the potential and I wonder if enterprises will eveuntually use these kinds of apps to understand their user base better ?

@Maryam I'm sure they already have access to something of that sort that FB offers when it sells ads that are meant to be effectively targeted (though they aren't always).

Ariella I actually haven't played with tools such as this, though they are very interesting. I would expect that companies would love to access the data to get information about social influencers and their reach.

@Noreen, well the Facebook stats would be how data miners who draw on it would see you -- for good or ill. I'm always mindful that anything there can become public, which is why my few posted pictures only show places and no people. But not all my connections are so cautious. It makes me feel like an accidental voyeur to have them post updates and photos about their relationships and then relay the breakup, and then the next relationship.

Oh Ariella...now I not only have to worry about posting, I have to worry about how those postings will translate in terms of my own personal social data!!

@SaneIT I'm glad you found it illuminating and entertaining. Now, I'm not saying it's impossible for people over 100 to be on FB, just that given the odds of it, I become quite skeptical when I see two in that category among my friends.  And while some people disguise their birthdates by making themselves younger, it is quite possible that some choose the other direction.

I have to say that this is pretty cool.  I was surprised to see what my most liked photo was for example.  I was also laughing when I found that one of my friends is 102 years old, let's just say bad data makes for some funny rankings.  Lastly I was surprised to see that the person who has the most "friends" in common isn't a family member.  I would have expected it to be someone closer but it's someone I have a fringe friendship with.  Some very interesting data points there.
