How popular was that cat video you posted on Facebook? Or how about those pictures from your most recent vacation?
A new app called Good Sort will find your most popular posts on Facebook according to likes, comments or shares. First, you have to let the app access your Facebook Wall. Good Sort lets you stay on top of the most commented and liked posts that include you, so potentially embarrassing pictures you’re tagged in never get buried in your feed without you noticing them.
Perhaps the purpose of this app is to help you better manage your page, gain more Facebook friends or simply boost your Facebook confidence. But just how much will users want to pay for this app?
The Good Sorts app [iTunes link] is available for $.99 on iTunes, but requires a quarterley subscription of $2.99 if you want to sort posts of friends, groups and pages (so long as you have admin access). Seems a lot to shell out, but so far in the comments on the iTunes app store, users are fans of this app.
We downloaded the app to test it out. It’s easy to use and gives accurate and sometimes surprising results, but it choked on our Mashable page with a million subscribers. The message “Could not load data. Please try again later” appeared on our screen.
Once it started crashing when we checked our Mashable account, we switched back to our personal Facebook page and that wouldn’t load either. Perhaps the server gets easily overwhelmed. But when we could check our personal Facebook posts, it reminded us of posts we’d forgotten about, and provided useful information. It’s a useful app when it’s working.
