Come on, Facebook sluts! Get Friending! And Frenemy-ing! Ready that pointer finger, because Facebook is about to become even more of a competition-fueled, Livefeed shitshow: Google apparently has some sort of frightening patent pending on a technology that will be able to rank the most influential people on social networking sites. This would be achieved by tracking things like profile views, how often people post things on friends’ walls and how many clicks someone can get on posted notes or YouTube clips — kinda like the old Gawker model, except you’d be paid in Internet popularity instead of cash.
