Gravity App Scours Twitter and Facebook to Predict Your Interests Comment
February 8, 2011 § Leave a comment
Everyday, in your tweets and Facebook updates, you’re giving testament to all the things that you love–whether it’s hungover owls, terrifying Asian Ronald McDonalds, or drinking FourLoko. Usually, only your friends can decipher all that, and generate a profile of who you are, and what you care about.
Now imagine instead that a web app could do all that. And imagine again that this web app could map all that information, along with that of your friends. Got it? Then you understand Gravity, a new startup founded by MySpace vets. “Gravity’s Interest Graph is an online representation of a person’s real-world interests, derived from public conversation and profile data on the social web,” Gravity’s lead software architect, Kunal Anand, tells us.
