American Chemistry Council Launches “Myleculesm” Facebook Application

May 01, 2009

The American Chemistry Council (ACC) launched “Mylecule,” a new application on the social networking website The Mylecule allows users to create “molecular bonds” with select friends or groups of friends to establish the “common bonds” users share with their friends. The virtual three-dimensional molecular bonds allow each user the ability to interact with their Mylecule, and to connect directly to the profiles of their friends. The user or creator of Mylecule is the nucleus (otherwise known as the center) and each friend is represented by an “element” with his or her initials. The elements are joined together with bonds that show how many friends you have in common or how many common bonds you have. The complete Mylecule gets a unique formula and shape based on the first letter of each friend's name.
