Facebook Users Outed!

Facebook's news feed feature can be quite revealing to say the least. Where else can you find your ex boyfriend, his new girlfriend and her friends and find out exactly where they've been vacationing and who they have been talking to? There's MySpace, but that opens a whole other creepy can of worms. When our friends over at Switched listed some fun facts about Facebook users, I decided I had to share them with you. And by the way, I am totally not surprised by these stats, as I'm guilty of having a few Facebook laugh sessions myself.

  • Over sixty percent of guys and girls use Facebook to check up on their ex.
  • Fifteen percent of guys have used Facebook as a means to "pleasure themselves," whereas only one percent of women admitted to this act. (Use your imagination.)
  • A large percentage of both girls and guys said that they've sat around with friends making fun of people on Facebook.
  • Almost half of all users revealed that they've been boozin' a few times while using Facebook.

I used to like facebook, back when I felt it was college and semi-private and secure. Now it's all whacked out.

I definitely know people who use it for, basically, stalking people. I liked it better when it was just for college kids and it wasn't so crazy with all those applications.

I'm addicted to Facebook! A lot of my friends live in different parts of the world, so it's an easier way of staying in touch. I'd never use Myspace though. I think Myspace is more of an American thing and not so popular in other parts of the world.

oooh facebook stalking, one of my ultimate online hobbies. a word to the wise- drunk facebooking is never a good idea!! and never leave your facebook account logged in on someone else's computer or you will find many unwanted changes! :)

*guilty grin* but only for the checking up on exs thing- I've never done any of the others.

i like the one where they have, people who say "maybe" to attending something they were not going to. I do that all the time because i feel bad saying no. But this was really cute to read.

I've never even gone to Facebook. Between MySpace, Xanga, and Sugar I'm spent.
