Now that the dust has settled on the Facebook IPO, find out how much money the company is banking off you — i.e., your data — with this fun, little app we made: FBME. The app is so called since we calculate your slice of Facebook’s market cap. More than fun and games, there’s actually a serious algorithm at work here. In short, we fetch your profile info from Facebook, use their own ad system to measure what advertisers pay to target each of your attributes, and plug in real-time FB quotes to arrive at your personal valuation.
