I am glad to note that Mining Facebook Data: Most "Liked" Status and Friendship Network was the 56th most read post on R-bloggers last year and its coverage on Revolution Analytics' blog Visualize your Facebook friends network with R made it to Top 10 most popular 2012 posts. Hope, one day my research papers will receive the same level of publicity.
Meanwhile, I think about other low-hanging fruits:
- Quantify who "likes" your posts most, use it as a distance in the Friendship Network
- Based on TED Talks that you liked in past, predict whether you will like next one (instead of TED Talks, one can look for movies or anything similar)
- Automatic birthday wish posting
Any other idea? I will implement one or two of those and post here the codes.
