I recently had these thoughts and I’m documenting them for version 2 of the Stronico application.
- Psychological profiling of contacts. I’m thinking of a simple Type A, Type B snap judgment one can make after first meeting a person. If I can think of working in the Myers-Briggs personality types that would be wonderful, but I don’t think the information is there to implement it practically.
- A matchmaker feature – if two contacts have similar tags, friends, interests, life statuses, locations etc, but are not known to know each other, it would be a great thing to introduce them (as written about in the great book “Never Eat Alone” by Keith Ferrazzi. I realize that Facebook has a similar feature, but this would make the decisions based on information that only you, the Stronico user would know.
- Archetyping – this is related to point 1, but it would be useful information to store impressions about someone, i.e. is that person a drama queen, unflappable robot (much like the author…), sports fanatic, sensitive artist, and the like. These would not be that accurate, but it could come in handy, particularly for those people with large networks. The use of broad archetyping is useful as a sorting mechanism.
