Officially launched last November, Tallygram is a website that applies user's Facebook information to find and make new friends. Once a user has signed in, Tallygram asks questions, from a person’s pet preference to their political party. The questions are yes or no, with an additional text box to explain your answer. Users may choose from a prewritten set of explanations, or write their own. After answering, users rate other people’s answers on a sliding scale.
Once questions have been answered and rated, profiles of other users will display a “report card,” which breaks down answers into percentages based on how much two users agree. Categories range from politics to hobbies, and are then added up and displayed as a total match percentage. There are two percentages, ‘friend’ and ‘enemy,’ that add up to 100.
Notifications appear when users agree or disagree with each other’s answers. Users can interact with each other by following each other, messaging, chatting, and sending Facebook friend requests.
Current users have the option of sending Facebook friends invitations from the add friends tab. The website is still in pre-beta, and those with accounts can offer and vote on suggestions to improve the experience. A wave of invitations were sent out on February 6th, with more to come.
