Wolfram Alpha now allows you to analyse your Facebook activity :)

Found 2nd Sep 2012
It showed me I used it most at the first half of 2011, average 1.3 likes per comment and 1.4 replies per comment. It also shows I have hardly used it since 2011 2nd half and has analysed who has contributed the most on my Page!

As I mentioned, I hardly use Facebook any more but it's a cool feature. Download the fb app on Wolfram Alpha and try it yourself!

Not quite the same as 'googling' yourself

And inaccurate.

I haven't looked at the Facebook stuff you're referring to but I've tried Wolfram search a few times, despite my aversion to its self-regarding creator ("a new kind of arrogant") and compared to the awesome Google, it sucks.

I just had another go on it to see if it was better since I last tried it.

I entered a phrase, it came back slooooooooowly with a nicely formatted, detailed and concise summary of a completely different subject with no immediately obvious clicky way of saying "no, Wolfram, you are completely wrong.".

Had a play around myself and its pretty fun, of course I wont link to my facebook though as I usually dont like to link search engines to my personal info.

Checked my google profile the other day for things I had searched for in the past year and even I think i'm a weirdo

Wolfram is a weird one, it seems to work quite well with dates and numbers but not much good as a 'search engine'. I'm not really sure how to use it! The Facebook thing is pretty good though...

Wrote a similar post and deleted it after testing with some plain text searches. You can search company CEOs and the fastest router from town A to town B

Yes, I'm not clear either exactly what its purpose is - looking into it it says in the Wikipedia page it answers queries rather than providing a list of possible answers, so I was expecting something it doesn't set out to provide.

Given how slow it is, the lack of alternatives is possibly partly due to lack of processing resources as much as an overconfidence in its ability.

But I guess I should allow for the "alpha" in its name...
