Have you ever felt that it was kinda odd when you started typing a letter in the Facebook search box, and your best friends name immediately popped up? Well it’s not chance.
A hacker over at The Keesh
found out that Facebook scores your friends based on some kind of algorithm, most likely attributed to how much you stalk them. I tested it out, and it works pretty well. Basically you get a list on the left of names, and on the right are numbers (the more negative, the more weighted you are towards them). Well, I won’t say who was weighted -126 on mine, but let’s just say it was mighty accurate and slightly embarrassing!
If you head to this page
you can read more about the Bookmarklet, and see it in action. Or, if you are a bit more tech savvy (and by that, I mean you know how to copy and paste) just grab the script below and put it in the URL while you’re surfing FB.
Or just drag this link
to your Bookmarks bar, and hit it when you’re browsing FB.
One note, I tried this in HTTPS mode of Facebook, and it didn’t work. So, you’ll have to forego that to test it. It’s pretty interesting. Give it a go and see who you stalk! Or, put it on your significant others Facebook and watch your relationship go down the shitter 🙂
PS I realize there are like a bajillion Facebook hacks lately, and you might be scared to do this. I assure it’s not going to do anything to your FB. And, if you still don’t believe just read Tech Crunch.
