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!

If I had to choose one, I'd probably be the lurker. Sounds creepy, but I swear I'm not! I just happen to read through my news feed and then click on people's profiles... I'm not a stalker... :( lol

I use FB. I don't think I fall into any of those categories specifically, but I do know of a few people that do.

I also do not have facebook... i tried the "myspace" thing years ago and it was all i did. I was obsessed with always changing my music and my backgrounds and stuff. So i got rid off it and all the people who weren't my friend.

I don't have FB. I wonder if I should or if it would hinder my reputation. I like being untraceable online.
