A new website just launched called Your Social Colonic that promises to analyze the posts of all your Facebook friends and identify which ones are “toxic”.
I’ve been slowly and strategically reducing the number of connections I have on my personal Facebook, favoring instead to have most of my connections through my business Facebook page. So I figured doing a “Social Colonic” was worth a few minutes to help me clean up my friends list.
The website took about 5 minutes to run my report, which was fine because I had it going in the background and kept working while it was doing it’s thing.
The report was a little surprising, because it identified some of my most favorite people as “most toxic”. I’m really not sure if that’s a condemnation of the Social Colonic service or my choice in friends. 🙂
It broke up my friends into different categories, such as “Johnny Stalker”, “Hitch-liker”, “Emo Therapists” and “Self-Likers”. Through these breakdowns, I found a couple of people that I determined I should disconnect from. CLICK! Gone.
The most useful part of the report for me was the “Total Profanities Detected” section, which showed me who was peppering my stream with unnecessary vulgarity. (Yes, I do believe there can be necessary vulgarity at times) Anyway, ZAP!, they’re outtahere.
Overall, Your Social Colonic wasn’t quite as amazing as I had hoped it would be, but it wasn’t totally lame either. I think it’s worth taking 5 minutes to check it out, so click the logo below to get started . . .
Have fun! (And please be sure to leave a comment below if you learn anything interesting from running YOUR report)
