Wolfram Alpha is continuing to expand into the data analytics space with a feature that will likely be more popular amongst regular users than its professional data analysis service: personal analytics reports based on Facebook. To try it, simply go to Wolfram Alpha's website, type in "Facebook report," and enable the Wolfram Alpha Facebook app. As you might expect, it needs plenty of permissions in order to analyze your Facebook activity and friends, but once you grant them, Wolfram Alpha kicks out a remarkably detailed report in very short order. Details on where you checked in, whether your friends are married or single, a cluster-map of your friend network, and information about your own Facebook usage are all presented with detailed graphs that you can easily share.

You might think of it as a data-lover's version of Facebook's own Timeline, broken down into as many as 60 different reports. It is a stunning reminder of just how much Facebook knows about you and your network, and also gives you a chance to dig into your personal analytics almost as much as Stephen Wolfram has dug into his.
