7 Things Every Facebook User Needs To Know


1   Your Facebook profile probably reveals your true personality. It’s especially   indicative of howextroverted and open to new experience you are but it can also tell people whether you have anxietyand even predict your job performance.

2   I wouldn’t get too paranoid though;most people just judge you off the photo. Then again that photo can predict how happy you’ll be 5 years from now. (Just from status updates, Facebook knows how happy the entire US is every day of the year.)


3  Your “relationship status” says a lot abouthow happy you probably are. What’s a really good sign? Men who listed their partnership status (“In a relationship with…”) and women whose profile picture displayed their partner both had happier relationships.


4  Facebook knowsthe days and months when you’re most likely to start a new relationship. Hell, Facebook can predict with a 33% accuracy who you’ll be dating next week.


5  Dunbar’s numbersays we can only sustain 100-230 friends. It holds up online too; despite how many “friends” you have you’re probably only active with about 100-200 of them consistently. Facebook promotes mainly weak, low-commitment friendships  And the main reason for un-friendingis because somebody posts too much uninteresting crap.


6  Only about 1/5th of your Facebook friendsinfluence your behavior. You don’t end up blindly liking what your Facebook friends like; in fact, you look to them to find out what not to like. And it’sdefinitely worth reconnecting with old friends on the site.


7  On Facebook everyone shows the best and not the worst, leading to portraits of unattainable lives thatcan make us feel bad by comparisonHere are some great tips by experts for using Facebook to enhance your happiness. Overall, Facebook users get more emotional support than other people. Now there are definitely problems that have been caused by Facebook; for instance the site makes itquite difficult to be an undercover cop. 🙂
