[prMac.com] London, England - Gizmodo's App of the Day - Frimby Limited today announces Facemood for iOS, an application which allows users to discover the mood of their friends through running a specialized algorithm on their Facebook metadata, such as their latest Facebook status. Quantifiable data concerning the moods of friends is currently absent from social networking, and therefore Facemood fills the void in the market.
Our algorithm encompasses a wide variety of variables such as keyword usage, sentence structure and punctuation before coming to a conclusion about how a user's Facebook friends are feeling. Friends' moods are explained in simple and graphical icons and terms on a Profile View. When you are presented with a friends' mood, you can find out more information concerning its method of compilation; Facemood reveals select keywords which it used to conclude a friend's mood.
Facemood utilises a variety of sources for its keyword database (e.g from Urban dictionary), but also allows users to add personalised keywords so the algorithm can pick up specific words that connote a certain mood. e.g if a friend is happy when they play soccer, the user can associate 'soccer' with an emotion of their choice, in this case 'excited'.
Facemood allows users to browse and search through all their Facebook friends. A user can also add their friends to a Favourites list, which is updated automatically and directly shows friends' moods in a clean and graphical manner. A user can also browse their own Facebook account in the app, accessing and viewing all available Facebook feeds.
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later (iOS 4.0 Tested)
* 2.0 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Facemood 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Social Networking category. Facemood is soon expanding to other mobile platforms, but currently exclusive to iOS on the App Store.
