Wondering who your closest FB friends are? Theres a hack for that :)
So Facebook knows a lot about you. They know how many times you have seen someones profile, how many inboxes and chats you’ve started, they know how many reciprocal likes you have, how many shared interests, they know when you’re both geographically nearby. So how do they use that knowledge to make your Facebook experience relevant, coherent and accurate? They assign your friends a score, and depending on that score, they make you see more or less of that person, encouraging more or less interaction with them. Its interesting to think, because if facebook were determined to make you like someone more, or at least interact with them more, they certainly have the ways to do it.
- Go to your Facebook profile page, right click anywhere, then click “view page source”. This show’s you the html source code of the page.
- Now push command + F (or just use the search function of your browser) and search the page for “OrderedFriendsListInitialData”.
- Now highlight and copy the whole array of numbers after that phrase, excluding the first and last quotation mark.
Now click here and insert those numbers in the text field I have provided. You will then have a neat list of your top 100 friends, as judged by Facebook.
