CNN's List of 12 Types of Facebook Personalities

Which Kind of Facebook User Are You?

Need a lift? I suggest that click over to CNN to check out their definitive list of Facebook user types.

They've outlined 12 painfully true identities, which include people like The Lurker, who don't update much but mention to you in person how nice you look in your latest batch of photos, the mind-numbing Bores who outline every activity of their day, the Self-Promoters (self-explanatory), and the Sympathy-Baiter, whose updates are just fishing for you to ask why they're so bummed today.

As much as this list gives you a chuckle or makes you go 'ugh', come on; I know you see a bit of yourself in these definitions. I know I've shamelessly self-promoted, told the occasional lame uninteresting update about my day (I blame Twitter for that), and I'm sure I've been the Paparazzo.

Look hard, and tell me which one you are, or have occasionally been!
