Simply put, Social Me analyzes your life on Facebook. Just enter your Facebook log-in information and, depending how active you are on Facebook, wait a few seconds up to a couple of minutes. Zeebly analyzes your status updates, photos, friends, language and more to deliver a complete report that visualizes “different dimensions of who you are,” according to Social Me.
Intrigued? Let’s use our fearless leader, Shelly Kramer, as an example. The first revelation? Shelly uses Facebook a ton. (No duh!)
What’s more interesting? The things Shelly talks about the most on Facebook: social media, the Internet and marketing. Makes sense, right?
As the report continues, Social Me dives more deeply into Facebook activity. Some of Shelly’s stats include:
- 6,670 status updates
- 95% of posts come from Facebook.com, 5% from mobile
- She posts most often in the afternoon
- Her most talked about subjects include social media, the Internet, marketing, technology, community, sexuality and mobile. (Clearly she needs to talk more about beer and Milk Duds. Oh, and cupcakes).
Now here’s where Social Me gets really interesting. The tool analyzes your Facebook content to determine your personality qualities. Here’s how Shelly stacks up:
The thing that didn’t surprise me but will probably surprise many is that according to SocialMe’s analysis of her Facebook posts, Shelly is an introvert. Interesting, isn’t it?
By now, we know that you know the V3 team is a big ol’ bunch of data nerds. And we love words and writing, too, which makes the next part of the Social Me report our favorite. Social Me examines all of a Facebook user’s status updates and compares them to the average user to generate a list of facts about that person’s writing style, including:
Social Me concludes with a breakdown of your Facebook friends, including what percentage are male and female, top commenters and friends by age group. Here’s the neat thing—Social Me shows you your entire report up until this section, but requires that you share your report (on Facebook, of course) before you see the rest. We think that’s a pretty novel idea—they give you more than enough information so that you’re fully intrigued, then ask for a relatively painless buy-in to get the rest of the report. You get more information, they get visibility from your Facebook network—it’s a win-win.
In terms of free data reports, Social Me is one of our favorites. Sure, it may not have a ton of business applications (and speaking of, we hope to one day be able to run similar reports on Facebook pages—can you imagine the audience data you could collect?), but in terms of learning more about yourself, not to mention exactly how much information your Facebook activity reveals about you, it’s interesting, isn’t it?
Enough talk—you’ve gotta go generate your own Social Me report. And once you do, get back over here and tell us the most surprising or interesting thing you learned about yourself. Shelly will bake cupcakes for whoever shares the most compelling info. Or at least I think she will.
