The application examines users’ Facebook interactions over the past year, and divides friends into the following categories:
- Real friends: Those who regularly like or comment on posts, share several mutual friends or chat frequently.
- OK friends: Those who interacted via likes, comments or chat “at least a few times.”
- Fake friends: Those who share many mutual friends but have never interacted with the user.
- Fans: Those who have interacted but are not on users’ friends lists.
- Useless friends: No mutual friends or interactions.
- Un-friended: Facebook users defriended by users, those who have defriended users, or those who deactivated their accounts. The developer warned that this last category may be removed due to a possible conflict with the social network’s terms of service.
