Graph Studios will be offering the full version of Status Shuffle on the

Status Shuffle helps users find a status message to post on their Facebook
Timeline. The application selects from 3.3 million crowd-sourced statuses
using a proprietary shuffling algorithm and recommendation engine that
suggests statuses that users are more likely to care about and engage with.
Status Shuffle users automatically moderate the content simply by using Status
Shuffle. People have set their status, voted on statuses, shared statuses or
saved a status as a favorite more than 1.6 billion times using Status Shuffle
via the web, mobile web and iOS apps. The Status Shuffle engine combines these
signals with user demographic information to determine which statuses are
relevant and likely to resonate.
Status Shuffle for iPhone is available and works on recent iPhone, iPad and
iPod touch devices. It builds on the Status Shuffle Facebook app and shares
the same database. This means that iOS users have full access to all Status
Shuffle statuses and that a user's favorites will be available on both iOS and
web versions of Status Shuffle.
Status Shuffle for iPhone is also accessible to the blind, visually impaired
and people with print disabilities using VoiceOver and Zoom.
"We saw a lot of requests from visually impaired people to use Status
Shuffle," said Solomon. "So we added full VoiceOver support. Status Shuffle
has been accessible for over a year and that is something we are very proud
of. We get lots of comments from people thanking us for doing this. We hope
that lots of these users will take advantage of the 2-year anniversary
