Over the past decade Online Social Networks (OSNs) have made it possible for people to stay in touch with people they already know in real life; although, they have not been able to allow users to grow their personal social network. Existence of many successful dating and friend finder applications online today show the need and importance of such applications. In this paper, we describe an application that leverages social interactions in order to suggest people to users that they may find interesting. We allow users to expand their personal social network using their own interactions with other users on public pages and groups in OSNs. We finally evaluate our application by selecting a random set of users and asking them for their honest opinion.
