Facebook Faces, by Karen Ann Monsy
She states “The whole world is on the most popular social media site, but what is your Facebook avatar: stalker, habitual ‘liker’, ‘selfie’ artist, check in specialist, self promoter, follower? We profile the most common types of ‘virtual denizen’ attributes”
Well the ‘whole world’ might be a strong statement but I can certainly count on one hand the people I know who aren’t on Facebook. Even my Mom is, she might not have mastered it but she certainly has a FB presence on the site we check….how many times a day!?
Her article states that among your Facebook ‘friends’ (friends said loosely because I appear to have 602 – lucky me, 602 friends – another interesting subject area for another day) you can categorise people into the following titles, and yes it’s very true. Read the list below and I guarantee one name comes to mind for each.
1. The selfie artists
2. The stalkers
3. The habitual commentators/likers
4. The attention seekers
5. The self-promoters
6. The activists
7. The loved up ones a) The over sharing parent b) The PDA couple c) The proud pet owner
8. The check-in experts
9. The Poker/Gamers
10. The unnaturally popular
If you’re my Facebook friend which one do you think I thought was you????
