I know some people that pick their Facebook friends from their friends own friends lists ( phew that was a lot of friends.) They do it because they figure that if they are friends of friends they must be pretty cool and have vaguely similar interests to themselves. Friendscanner is a free social chat tool for Facebook that kind of does the same thing. The main difference here though, is that it is based on analysis rather than assumption. It can connect you with people with similar interests to yourself based on Facebook profiles.
Friendscanner connects you to like-minded people based on your interests and activities with the eventual aim of helping you make new friends. Simply log on to the website using Facebook and view the users who have similar interests to your own based on your Facebook profile. Then you can pick from the list of users and invite them for an instant chat. Because all the information garnered is from your social networking networks you can start connecting as soon as you sign in. It's philanthropic qualities are released by way of it's philosophy to provide users with a valuable service and to add real value to one's life by introducing the user to new friends rather than to leave it to fate.
Admirable qualities indeed. You can't have too many friends they say. Well unless that means Facebook friends, of course. Friendscanner basically sorts through the interests of your friends' friends and matches them up to your own. Those that fit your profile best are recommended to you and you can have a chat with them to see if you have a chance of a bit of bonding. If not you can ditch em forever. Sounds good to me.That is, unless the guy that is matched up to be my friend is a fan of Dexter, that is. Then you might have a prop em on your hands.
