Facto.me lets you share fun facts with friends

If you’re looking for an entertaining, mildly addictive distraction for your time, check out Facto.me. The app is designed to help users share facts about themselves – facts that wouldn’t normally come up in conversation, or perhaps facts about life that don’t come up because no one ever asks the question.

After creating an account, you can share a fact about yourself. Then, users can interact using the buttons below your post, including things like I knew that, I didn’t know that, or Boring! The site also gives you the ability to follow your friends, so you can stay up-to-date with their updates. If none of your friends are sharing facts, you can click to see a fact from someone random.

But, it’s not all about you – it’s also a great way to learn about friends and even random people in the world. You’ll find everything from highly personal tidbits to funny quirks that perhaps they’ve never shared before.

The site was designed in less than 24 hours and launched in January 2011. When it was just three days old, it had 2,000 users and 8,000 facts had been shared. It’s the newest addition to other Q&A sites like Quora and Formspring.
