Here is their Press Release:

Paramount Vantage releases distinctive Facebook Application for American Teen Film and offers $1000 cash prize.

(Los Angeles, June 4, 2008). Paramount Vantage released a Facebook Application for American Teen. The application is a quiz that categories users as various highschool cliché characters as seen in the movie (ex. Princess, Rebel, Jock). Releasing July 25, 2008, American Teen is the touching and hilarious Sundance hit that follows the lives of four teenagers - the jock, the popular girl, the artsy girl and the geek - in one small town in Indiana through their senior year of high school. We see the insecurities, the cliques, the jealousies, the first loves and heartbreaks, and the struggle to make profound decisions about the future.

Facebook, one of the largest social networking websites, serves an interactive application based on the film. The application guides the user through a 20-question personality quiz and categorizes them into one of the personas from the film based on the answers. While the question format is similar to most Facebook applications, the interaction is unique and consequently, stands apart from all the others. The personality test is analyzed and the results group the user into one of five groups; the jock, the princess, the rebel, the heartthrob or the geek. Although very new, the American Teen application has already seen thousands of users. One user we spoke to, Amy says,

“The application was so easy to use and my friends and I are having so much comparing our results. My friends tease me because I am such a princess; the personality test is so accurate it’s scary!”

The application is unique because it allows you to see how your friends scored as well. All of the results are displayed in an interactive virtual universe that allows you to make connections with people like yourself all over the world. For instance, all of the rebels can see one another’s profile and communicate. Just like the film, the primary goal of the application is to encourage people to look outside what is comfortable, discover commonalities with people and build relationships upon them. What makes this application so popular is that all ages can relate to the highschool clichés, making Facebook the perfect medium.
