Your Twitter account contains an incredible amount of information just waiting to be harvested and organized. The service Visual.ly is there to help the cause. Since it was first announced, I was eager to see how it would do what it purported and now I (and you) can!
Visual.ly takes the data from your Twitter account and creates your own personal infographic. Up for the challenge, I headed off to the site and completed the form to get mine. Here I am!
Looking over this, it’s me all right. There’s nothing there that’s not available freely by analyzing me on Twitter. Well, maybe not the geeky grin but I do try to tweet good things rather than bad things. I must admit that I read “likely”, “obsession”, and “circumstantial” really quickly and wondered how they knew… But, upon closer inspection, I do like to read and share although not through a traditonal book. If that only was an iPad… It does look like I could do more work on being interesting and do it enthusiastically.
In addition to the single infographic, you can compare yourself (versus) against another user. So, I elected to go head to head with my OSLA and GECDSB nemesis @zbpipe. The results….
Looks like we’ve got Andy in common! Apparently, Zoe is more social than I am – do my automated tweets count against me? <grin>
Anyway, it’s an interesting little time waster. Check it out. I think I’ll add my personal one to my Digital Footprint page. It is a nice summary. What does your infographic tell the world about you?
