Understand Your Facebook Ecosystem With Wolfram|Alpha

Wolfram|Alpha FacebookStephen Wolfram announced that they now let you analyze your Facebook data and history with Wolfram|Alpha Facebook Analytics.

It is pretty cool, but for some reason, it did not work for me.

You go to Wolfram|Alpha and search [facebook report] and then it asks you to analyze your data.

Wolfram|Alpha Facebook Analyze

After you click that, you have to grant access to Wolfram|Alpha to access your Facebook data and that is a couple steps but after you are done, it opens this loading screen.

For me, it went to about 63% and then went back to 0%, not sure why but just hung there.

If it worked, it would show where my friends are and how old they are:

click for full size

click for full size

It would show me my posting activity in analytics form:

click for full size

click for full size

click for full size

click for full size

And much more.

I wish it worked, I am curious how my Facebook stats look, despite me barely using it like a normal person.

My favorite part was seeing a network of my friends, clustered together by mutual friendships.

Hi Barry, Not sure what is going on here but I'm seeing some pretty funny advertising on this page of your site. My machine is clean and I'm not seeing it anywhere else so pretty sure it's coming from your end. Here's a screenshot from my machine:

I'll look into it. I don't manage the ads here.

It's now back to the normal ads for me. Those TLA ones were pretty horrendous. Not sure what happened there.
