Facebook has a pulse

Facebook now does something with the interest data, aggregating it into a Pulse Feature. Fun facts:

  • 33% of Berkeley students prefer The Beatles to Green Day.
  • 18% of male students have moderate political views.
  • 17% of male students are looking for whatever they can get.
  • 57 people have birthdays tomorrow.
  • 124 students poked each other today.
  • 1.4% of Berkeley loves to watch Lord of the Rings.

Just think what advertisers will do with this data.
