This script shows you how Facebook ranks all your friends

Have you ever wondered how Facebook ranks your friends for you? The social network keeps a score for everyone you interact with on the service.

This affects the order of results when you start typing a name into the search box, the people that appear in your Friends box when someone visits your profile, whose content shows up in your News Feed (part of the EdgeRank algorithm), and pretty much any list that displays who you interact with on the site. To put this in layman’s terms, Facebook tracks who you stalk and who stalks you.
