Company Jiggle Launches New Facebook Ranking Application

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 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 users 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 a Facebook user just added a new friend on Facebook. With Jiggle, that Facebook user can click on that new friend and see the list of people who have interacting the most with him or her. In doing so, they will get a good summary of the users social network and who his or her close friends on Facebook really are. If it is someone the Facebook user is close with it, it will likely confirm what he or she already suspected about his or hers social network. If it is a more distant friend, it should be more 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 users content and couldnt 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 Facebook users to rank the top friends of their entire social network, not just their 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 Facebooks 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.
