Be The Match® has launched My Social StrandSM, a fun, interactive website that uses Facebook to discover and share the things that make people unique. From friends and family to traits and quirks, the result is a shareable, dynamic and highly personalized graphic snapshot that includes personality traits, activities, relationships and more.

Find out if you have more friends than the average Facebook user, who’s your most supportive friend and much more when you create your social strand!

You will also learn more about Be The Match during the process of creating your personal profile. We are all unique, yet we are all connected in some way. The qualities that make you, you are also the ones that could save a life.

You can help spread the word!

  • Create your own social strand and share your profile through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or email.
  • Encourage your networks to check out My Social Strand.
  • Blog and/or tweet about My Social Strand and encourage readers to create their own profile, and then share their results with you and their networks.

Have fun learning about your social strand, and help us spread the word!

    Every time I click on a link to the social strand, I get this error message.

    I get to the pie and then the “Next” button doesn’t work anymore. I click, wait, click, wait, nothing ever happens. Can’t go back either. It’s a good idea but maybe not totally ready to function.

    Being ourselves makes us what we are and what we are makes us us. All the people are unique, different, and that’s a great thing. We’re all special in our own way.

    Seems like a fun tool and for a great way to spread the word about Be The Match, but I’m getting an error message as well.
