How Political Are Your Facebook Friends?

Created by business intelligence software company MicroStrategy, Inc., the Wisdom app determines where your friends fall in the political spectrum and turns the results into a handy infographic for you to share on your wall. The app can't save you from your friends' political rants on Facebook, but it just might save you from yourself.

Created by business intelligence software company MicroStrategy, Inc., the Wisdom app determines where your friends fall in the political spectrum and turns the results into a handy infographic for you to share on your wall. The app can’t save you from your friends’ political rants on Facebook, but it just might save you from yourself.

Wisdom taps into Facebook’s social graph to rank your friends by degree of fanaticism, from “very liberal” to “very conservative.” The results are based on more than 3,000 Facebook pages, which have been marked as either conservative or liberal, that your friends may have liked.

The resulting infographic also divides your social circle by the number of men and women in each political party. So before you go on a long-winded recap of the presidential debates or start discussing your stance on hot-button issues that even Congress won’t touch, take a look at your chart to see who your audience is.  They might not be as conservative or as liberal as you think.
