Cool Tool: Find Out What Your Facebook Interactions REALLY Say About You

by Jenny Hansen


Social Media rocks, doesn’t it? I think it’s one of the best inventions ever. I love the interaction, the variety and the community.

Most people prefer one platform over another, and I’m going to confess right up front to a bias toward Twitter. (Facebook, as fun as it is, takes up a ton of time in my opinion.)

Many of my pals have a love/hate relationship with social media and here are the complaints I hear most often on both sides of the fence.

Common Social Media Dislikes:

  • The updates whip by too fast.
  • Nobody talks to you.
  • It’s too hard to keep up.
  • It’s all sales.
  • It’s a waste of time.
  • What does all that time actually get you?

Common Social Media Likes:

  • The community is awesome.
  • You can go on when you want.
  • Increased blog traffic.
  • Tons of information.
  • It’s fun.

This post is about the last bullet point on each of those lists. I had tons of fun with a new tool I found through Dino Dogan, an online pal of mine and the co-founder of Triberr.

Zeebly’s app, SocialMe, sifts through your Facebook updates from the beginning of time and tells you what they say about you. I know…kinda spooky.

I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to know. But curiosity won and I’m glad it did so I could share all the deets with y’all.

When and What I post:

Zeebly - Topics Time Tone

My Facebook Personality:

Zeebly - Personality

(The only surprise to me above is that my updates say I lean more to the introverted side.)


And here’s where the stats started making me laugh…

[“Jenny uses more emoticons than 95% of people” had me clutching my sides laughing.]

Zeebly - Too much punctuation

And cry…

Zeebly - Total Words

I knew I cross-posted from Twitter more than was allowed thanks to Lisa Hall-Wilson’s FAB Facebook post, but more words than the Diary of Anne Frank? That one was a bit eye-opening. I resolved to back away from the computer MUCH more often.

If you’d like to check out your own Social Me analysis, it took me about five minutes. Feel free to do it and tweet me about your results with the #SocialIn hashtag. (My Twitter link is below.)

What’s YOUR favorite social media network?
