MVF, a hack created by Alex Taub and Michael Schonfeld, allows Twitter users to discover their most popular follower. Last week the app went viral, signaling the importance people place on information of this sort. Now the hacks are back with a second tool, MVF for Facebook. Controversially perhaps, this allows Facebook users to discover their most valuable friend based on a weighted combination of total number of friends and subscribers.
Whereas you can argue that apps like Klout deliver a somewhat arbitrary number, the secret of this app’s success is simplicity; essentially revealing the Facebook friend or Twitter follower in your network with the largest social reach.
