I am trying to show people how they are matched to others by specific interest. For example "You and Mark both like Transformers". Vector 4 returns a count of the person's interest for example they like 5 TV Shows/Movies. How would I find out specifically what TV Shows/Movies the 2 people share? From the documentation it looks like you can only compare on context like Work, Shopping, etc.

In order to make the process more efficient, once you have a Facebook access token (follow the How to create a Facebook App steps here: http://developer.whit.li/docs/read/How_to_Create_a_Facebook_App) you can follow Step 9 on the same page and get the specifics back. That combined with our algorithms on personality, categorization of interests, and later this month, rarity of interests will give you a full picture of the person.

OK, so basically I would compare interests in my code and not through the Whit.li API to get specifically what you and someone else had in common? thanks
If you want to compare specific interests, yes that is how I would do it. Our compares use both interests and personality in algorithms that reflect those specific contexts - like buying decisions, travel, working, living together or friends. Would it be of benefit to you for us to add an interest compare call?
Andi, I think this would be tremendously beneficial to the community using Whit.li. The context is great and you are using all those interests among other things to determine context score but if people can see those tangible interest connections I think it would re-enforce the power of the context even more. Rather than a lot of developers re-inventing the wheel each time with an interest matching algorithm you would add value to your API if you implemented it. In a perfect world I would call your api and compare two uids and specify category/context of id interests and it would return all matched interests.
Cool, that is really helpful and I will put it on our development list. Thanks!
