MIT Students Create App to Discover Gay Men on Facebook

Locating unidentified homosexual men on Facebook? There's an app for that. It was created by two students at MIT, who discovered that gay men tend to have more male Facebook friends of their own orientation.

The students, Carter Jernigan and Behram Mistree, ran the program on 10 men who were gay, but didn't reveal that information on their profiles. The software predicted that all ten were gay.

The software apparent does not work for bisexual people or lesbians. No word on when it will be available for the iPhone.

It's hard to know what to say about this.

Rushes to Facebook to see how many males vs. females are my friends... :D

I suppose this is more of a college or younger phenomenon. I only add friends that I actually know, I certainly don't go trolling just to add people. I don't know about them kids today, though.

You're just miffed that it won't work on hotness that transcends gender. :p

So that's why Facebook is down for maintenance.
