Here you’ll find a rank of top friends and pages you spent time reviewing their posts in addition to the top friends and pages you liked their posts.
Here are concepts, keywords, entities and personality traits depending on the content you viewed. Here, the first three parts are not provided for me, because my native language is Arabic. Unfortunately, Arabic is not supported by IBM’s AlchemyLanguage service that is used by Data Selfie to generate these three analyses. It only supports English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.
Here, on this main 5 personality traits scale, you’ll find 2 marks. The yellow one remarks what content you typed suggests, and the green one remarks what content you viewed suggests.
4-Religious and political orientations, health and shopping preferences and more!
The last and furthest group of insights record how Facebook sees your religious and political orientations, health and shopping preferences and other predictions. This is all done using Machine Learning API from the University of Cambridge and algorithm from IBM.
Yet, this is not all what Facebook knows!
As it is mentioned above, this is supposed to give you “a sense of what Facebook could know about your personality.” In Internet Policy Review journal’s take on Data Selfie, authors explain that the extension shows just the tip of the iceberg. After all, It starts recording your data just after you download it, ignoring your previous history. What is more important, it does not track your activity on your #1 communication platform; mobile. It is believed also that Facebook has the ability to generate further and deeper analyses. In addition, this extension uses similar algorithms to generate these analyses, but not Facebook’s ones. So, we still do not really know what Facebook knows about us.
But, it is worth to try it. You can download it by clicking here. It is downloaded by more than 91 k users already. And don’t worry, hopefully, your data is stored nowhere but on your computer, or as they put it:
“ We do not store your data. We pass only the necessary data through our servers to the APIs — without your personal information such as name, gender, etc. While we trust these two third-parties, they might store anonymized data or use the results to improve their services.”
Plus, if you’re a coder or a geek, you can see the extension’s code here. It’s open source.
So, have fun trying to discover your Facebook self!
