WU seeks World’s Most Socially Connected Person
Tomorrow, Western Union will be officially launching a new website that seeks to find the most socially and geographically connected person in the world. Called the Western Union World (www.westerunionworld.com), the app connects to your Facebook account and graphs all your friends worldwide.
I was invited by local reps of Western Union to attend the event tomorrow as one of their celebrity guests (together with Divine Lee and Carlos Celdran) and join the search. I will be competing against the two to see who among the three of us have the most friends geographically spread throughout the world.
According to the WU YourWorld, I have friends from 48 countries with a social index score of just over 13,000+. It’s not that much though. The Index only computes friends that are from other countries (so if you’re based in the Philippines, only friends outside of the Philippines will be counted in the index).
You can go check yours here. Do share in the comments what’s your ranking and Index. The search will run from tday ’til around September and they will also rank the most countries. I’m expecting the Philippines to be in the top #3.
