Ever wonder how “social media savvy” you are? Prollie is now in public alpha and offers an answer in the form of a letter grade for each of your social media accounts, including Foursquare. It also provides a way to find people based on their interests and social media activity.
“[Tuesday's] announcement of Facebook’s Graph Search shows just how important search will be for social media’s future; and how much more work there still is to be done to make the constant stream of information manageable for both consumers and businesses,” said prollie CEO Michael Fabbri in a press release. “We’re excited to be part of this industry shift, and proud to stand apart from the pack because we’re network agnostic: prollie analyzes and helps manage results from a variety of social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and Foursquare.”
Prollie examines your social media profiles and determines how effectively you’re using them, with a letter grade assigned to each and a combined grade assigned to rate your overall social media savvy. The scoring system is proprietary, but it apparently looks at followers/friends, retweets, likes, etc. across the different networks.
Users can opt in to the Prollie search engine, which allows them to be found by users looking for similar people across the web. Searchers can enter things like “travel” or “beer” and find like-minded Prollie users either locally or around the world to connect with.
The concept does, in fact, sound similar to the Facebook graph search announced on Tuesday, but offers a search that goes beyond Facebook to include other social media properties. It’s hard to judge the value of the search results at such an early stage, but it is at least fun to see your grades across the different social networks.
If you give Prollie a try, let us know your Foursquare grade in the comments.
