Hi Product Hunt! Back in April, Facebook made some major changes to their API, shutting down much of its social graph for developers. Our latest project, Me+You, is an experiment to find the next big social graph. It’s a simple tool/email (think OG Timehop / Agora) to let you know what you have in common with new Instagram followers (eg. Mutual friends and places you’ve both shared photos). Here’s more about why we built it, and what we’re trying to learn if you’re curious: https://medium.com/@elan_miller/... It’s very much a beta, but would love to hear what you think and answer any questions :)

Loving a lot of the apps that focus on making something meaningful out of IG connections these days, especially as we're seeing it as our main channel for user acquisition. Why'd you guys choose it over other socials graphs? Like the implementation, in any case.

@ruddct Thanks Rudd! We think Instagram has the potential to potential to be the next big social graph for 2 main reasons: a) Surfacing shared places on Glimpse (another app we built to date with Instagram) was really powerful and effectively drove a ton of conversation. b) Instagram is putting more emphasis on location. In their latest update, they auto-suggest venues, making it easier for the user to tag a place. We’re betting “Place-as-part-of-the-picture” will definitely be a thing moving forward.

It's really interesting to see how Instagram has evolved as a product and ecosystem (check out this Instagram products collection).

@rrhoover: Would it be possible to add Me+You to the Instagram collection on PH? :)

For the life of me, I can't figure out why dating apps don't do something like this yet
