What your Facebook status updates say about you
Our Facebook updates say more about us than we think we’re saying.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Cambridge found that users' status updates are a good indicator of age.
For example, users between 13 to 18 are more likely to talk about school, homework and use emoticons. Those in their late teens and early 20s are most likely to use profanity. Those between 23 and 29 post more about work, days off and weddings. Those over 30 talk more about family, friends and religion.
Another UPenn study found that scientists could predict a user’s gender with 92 percent accuracy.
And apparently what we “like” also says more than the obvious, reports Gawker.com. For example, if you "like" curly fries, you are more likely to have a high IQ. If you “like” anime, you are more likely to be introverted.
And I seem to pay a lot of attention to studies. I wonder what THAT says about me.
