Trident Gum recently launched a tax-time themed Facebook campaign that is aimed at taking your mind off financial issues.
Their Facebook Fun Audit app, is a variable video that connects to your Facebook account and brings in various aspects of your profile (friends, photos, etc), using a algorithms to place them in the video.
There are over 400 stat posts on DMR. Browse the full list here.
There are a few cool algorithms used in this app. During the “fun photos” part of the video, the app matches up your photos with album or image names with predetermined “fun” categories and points them out. For example, I had a picture from a wedding album show up and the host actually referenced weddings. The app also measures your friend requests and points out a person that “looks fun” that you should friend.
This is a fun concept and pretty well executed. I did have Flash issues halfway through the video and had to restart it multiple times. If you have the same problems, you can skip over the intro and go straight to the “audit” with this shortcut.
Try it out. Its a fun way to spend a few minutes.
