The 10 Types Of Facebook Friends
Even I don’t have that many.
When you have a lot of friends you’ll notice that each one of them has a different style of using Facebook. Everyone doesn’t use Facebook for the same thing – each one of us has a different reason for using it.
So, after looking through my friends list on Facebook, here are some of the types of FB friends I found.
1. The self obsessed status updater
This user likes to talk about three people – me, me and me. They update about how their Klout score is so high, about how their business is doing exceptionally well, about how they woke up early today, about how busy they are….you get the picture. I don’t think it is wrong to write about your achievements on facebook, absolutely not. But when you overdo it – it gets annoying. Even though Facebook is a part of social ‘ME’dia, if you keep talking about yourself all the time, chances are – you’ll get unsubscribed or worse, unfriended.
2. The user who updates after every 5 minutes
This type of user likes to update their friends with every little detail of their life right from waking up to saying good night…every single day. If you want to update after every 5 minutes maybe you should use twitter, everybody does it over there.
3. The once in a blue moon status updater
This user likes to log into facebook after every two months (or more), and when they do, they reply to all photo tags, comments, pokes and then – disappear for another two months.
4. The poke-r
This user likes to poke others, virtually. And if they get poked back, they feel happy I guess?
5. The Facebook stalker…err fan
This user is your fan and likes to ‘like’ and comment on every single post and/or photos on your wall. Of course, liking and commenting is great! But too much of it will make you look stalker-ish.
6. The food picture updater
This user likes to upload photos of the awesome food they eat all over the globe. While they enjoy the food, sometimes, all we can do is like the pics. Envious much.
7. The middle school/high school classmate
We all have that one friend who used to be a middle school/high school nerd but they turned out to be extremely hot/rich after growing up. You might’ve had such FB friends write on your wall saying something like, “Hey, it’s great to see you after a long time, let’s catch up!” School reunion, anyone?
8. The FB gamer
Such users log into Facebook to play games (aka Farmville, Yoville, Restaurant City etc) and then they like to send you many game requests .
9. The couples
Such users like to express their love by writing on each others’ walls. It’s cute, no doubt, but try calling each other next time, yeah?
10. The Check-in -er
This type of user likes to tell their friends about every single place they visit by ‘checking in’ on Facebook. If you keep checking in on every location you’re at, you might find some people actually following you in real life. #ScaryHuh?
These were some of the types of facebook friends I found on Facebook, do you have any more to add? What types of friends do you have on your FB? Which of these are you? 😛 Share with us in the comments!
