Terminal and the Center of Excellence in the Creative Arts at Austin Peay State University are pleased to announce the launch of Facebook Demetricator by Benjamin Grosser. Grosser is the recipient of a 2012 – 2013 Terminal Award. The Terminal Award is granted annually to four artists to help in the creation of new internet based artworks.
Facebook Demetricator is a browser add-on that removes all quantifying counts from the Facebook interface. Users are able to see who their friends are, but would have to count them by hand to know how many they have. They can see who comments on their status, but will only see their names instead of their aggregate value.
