A small app built in 24 hours that uses d3/c3.js to display the most commonly used words in a Facebook conversation. Uses Facebook OAuth (client-side) to log in. Requires access to user's messages. Makes Graph API v2.0 calls to get messages, then uses jQuery/Javascript to parse JSON data and feed into the visualization.


  • Go to wordgraph.azurewebsites.net
  • Log in with Facebook using the login button
  • Go to Facebook and grab a conversation ID by going to your messages, and grabbing it from the URL bar (this part is a bit tacky)
  • Paste the conversation ID into the box
  • Hit go!
  • Give it some time as it pulls in the data.
  • See what words are most popular!

##Known limitations/bugs

  • Breaks on conversations longer than about 50 pages (Facebook API rate limit)
  • Only works for conversation groups (1 on 1 conversations don't work)
  • You may need to click log-in twice, once before and once after you plug in a conversation ID
