Idea: Who was first on Facebook?

Like many people I fought Facebook‘s calling until I couldn’t stand my friends’ nagging anymore. Which makes me wonder, who of my friends were first?

While looking at the Facebook Graph API I noticed you can easily get someone’s friends list. Just check the link and scroll down to “Friends:”. If you click it you’ll get a JSON list with your friends name and ID. Noting that Mark Zuckerberg has ID 4, it seems like a simple incremental increase for every user.

So it all comes down to which of your friends has the lowest ID (oldest member), and the highest ID (newest member).

The idea is to have a simple site, or app, that looks through your Facebook friends list and shows you who was first, last, and compares it to you.
