  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) September 21, 2012 - Jiggle Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of the Facebook application that can be found here: The application was launched in early August after about six months of development.

    With this application, Facebook users can see who interacts most with them and who interacts most with any of their Facebook friends. It also has a breakdown of the interactions a particular Facebook user has with another user, including photos they are in together, wall posts, photo comments, and wall post comments. The goal of the application is to provide a different way of looking at a Facebook user's profile - one that focuses more on relationships the user has had with their Facebook friends.

    As an illustration of a use case for the application, suppose that you just added a new friend on Facebook. With Jiggle, you can click on the user and see the list of people who have interacting the most with that user. In doing so, you get a good summary of the user's social network and who his or her close friends on Facebook really are. If it is someone you are close with it, it will likely confirm what you already suspected about his or her's social network. If it is a friend you are less close to, it should be very revealing. The idea of the application was first conceived by Gevork Palyan, who wanted to see a Facebook application that is more integrated with the Facebook experience.

    About the application, he said, "In using Facebook applications and games, I noticed that very few of them actually make use of Facebook content. Many of these applications could exist outside of Facebook. I wanted to create an application that would make use of a Facebook user's content and couldn't exist without it."

    The Jiggle application has similar functionality to other existing applications on Facebook like My Top Fans and My Super Fans. However, this application allows you to rank the top friends of your entire social network, not just your own. This key idea was proposed by Raffi Hagopian, one of the several developers on the project. As he put it, "Most people already know who their top friends on Facebook are. This information is not as interesting. However, they are more likely to interested in who their friends' top friends are whether they admit or not."

    The application is written entirely in Javascript and makes use of Facebook's graph api. No data is stored on servers and communication with Facebook is all encrypted. The application runs on all modern browsers and mobile devices.
