Wolfram|Alpha to offer Facebook privacy insight

Internet users who sign up to use the Wolfram|Alpha search engine can now have the site analyze their Facebook usage in detailed graphs.

The Wolfram|Alpha Personal Analytics for Facebook device will reveal in full just how much data - such as check-ins, locations where photos were taken - and locations and ages of your friends, is publicly available.

“Today I’m excited to announce that we have developed a first round of capabilities in Wolfram|Alpha to let anyone do personal analytics with Facebook data.

“Wolfram|Alpha knows about all kinds of knowledge domains; now it can know about you, and apply its powers of analysis to give you all sorts of personal analytics.

“And this is just the beginning; over the months to come, particularly as we see about how people use this, we will be adding more and more capabilities,” said Stephen Wolfram of Wolfram|Alpha.

Wolfram Alpha LLC is a Wolfram Research company.

Wolfram|Alpha’s long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone.

The company aims to collect and curate all objective data; implement every known model, method, and algorithm; and make it possible to compute whatever can be computed about anything.

Wolfram|Alpha builds on the achievements of science and other systematizations of knowledge to provide a single source that can be relied on by everyone for definitive answers to factual queries.
