Facebook Knows Your Past And Present. Turns Out It's A Fortune Teller Too

If you’ve ever found yourself intrigued by a fortune-teller’s booth but less intrigued by the prospect of emptying your pockets only to find out that Jessica isn’t the one for you, a new web tool may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Predictive World is an interactive application that makes predictions about your behavior and lifestyle based on your social media activity.

Developed by the Psychometrics Centre at the University of Cambridge and game developer Ubisoft, the project has just gone live for the release of the upcoming open world action-adventure game, Watch Dogs 2.  

To uncover clues about your past, present and future, simply connect your Facebook account to the application. It then uses algorithms to analyze your public information and social media activity to create up to 60 predictions about you.

The predictions range from your salary and relationship status to your risk of being a victim of homicide or developing a substance abuse problem. It will even predict how much cannabis you consume.

The developers promise that your personal information won’t be stored, but you can enter the information manually if their prediction about those paranoid tendencies of yours holds any weight.

Try out the freaky tool right here – and rest assured that any newfound knowledge about your future with Jessica won’t cost you anything (beyond, perhaps, your last shred of sanity.)
