The 16 Types of Facebook User - Which one are you!?
Everyone has a friend on their friends list that can be put into a certain type of category of friend am I right? And since there are quite a lot of different types of Facebook friend, it's likely that you have one of these types of friends on your friends list. And while some friends are just obnoxious (we all have them!) some of them are funny, or some of them are just trying to be funny and trying too hard for that matter too. But let's look at the 16 types of Facebook friend you can have and what makes them that type of friend. And then we'll ask, are you any one of these types of Facebook friend?
1. The Lurker
This is the friend you have that never posts anything on Facebook let alone any comments on your status updates and photos and things. They will read everything you post and might even talk about something you said on Facebook bringing up an old status update or something you shared just to make conversation. But they never post a single word on Facebook!
2. The Hyena
These types of friends never really say anything of value on your status updates, photos and things that you share. They simply put things like "LOL" or "LMAO" or even "PMSL" (a slightly ruder way of saying they are relieving them self through laughter).
3. Mr/Mrs Popular
These are the people that have like 5000+ friends for no real particular reason. They usually accept anyone that that adds them regardless to if they know them or not. And some of them even add up random people just so they can have more friends than you have and thus appear more popular than you are!
4. The Gamer
These are the ones that don't really do much socializing on Facebook other than sit there playing games like Mafia Wars, or baking virtual cakes and sending you and everyone else virtual cup cakes all day long. ALL DAY LONG!!
5. The Innocent
These are the friends that always take a positive and innocent stance in their comments on your status updates and things. They usually always make reference to God or Jesus in everything you say or share as though there is some just cause and reason to do so.
6. The Thief
These are the friends that steal your status updates! They are too lazy or too unimaginative to come up with their own so they steal yours instead! That way, their friends can think they first thought of it and get some credit for it. That is until you post a comment on their status update saying "Hey, this was my status update you status thief!"
7. The Cynic
You know the type. They hate their life and everything in it! This is evidenced by how they take a somber tone in all of their status updates and never really say anything positive. They kind of remind you of that miserable cat meme!
8. The Collector
These are the types that never really say anything on Facebook, no status updates, no comments and posts on people's posts. But they join every group or like every fanpage going and even become fans of the most random stuff ever. Just because they can!
9. The Promoter
These are the friends that send you invites to everything such as events and fanpages, groups etc etc. Even if you haven't already expressed an interest in that type of thing or not!
10. The Liker
Very similar to the collector type of friend, they'll never really say a single damned thing but they will always click the "like" button on everything. Even if they don't really like it or even feel that inspired by it.
11. The Hater
Very similar to the cynic in that they don't often have anything positive to say but always think that someone hates them or they then show their hate for someone else even if no hate was first shown to them. They also think that everyone is out to get them and ruin their life.
12. The Anti-Proofreader
We all have friends that have bad grammar and spelling skills. And it's soo tempting to pick them up on it because you feel bad for them and want to help them. But you can't know if they was typing too fast or they're just lazy and can't really spell!
13. The Drama Queen/King
We all have those drama queens or kings! At least one or two! You know the type, they are always posting things like "I can't believe she said this" or "I'm going to snap today" with the hope you'll ask them what's up or what's happened or what's wrong even. But then they never really tell you the full story LOL.
14. The Womp Womp!
This is the friend that is forever trying to be funny but often trying too hard and never laughs at or likes any of your own funny stuff! They just want you to womp womp to them but never show any grin grin back! Even when what you say is truly funny!
15. The News Anchor
These are the friends that are forever telling you about what they are doing and who they are doing it with. They'll constantly check in with places even if it's their local coffee shop for 5 minutes and tell you the most mundane, arbitrary thing no matter if they know you'll be interested or not.
16. The Rooster
These are the friends that like to say "Good morning" every day on Facebook but don't ever post anything else. Like all there is in life are good mornings.
