What we know for sure about facebook (sample survey of peers and colleagues)

  1. In most cases the name is accurate
  2. Many people like receiving birthday wishes – birthdays are most likely accurate
  3. Profile pictures are going to either consist of:
    1. Self portrait
    2. Self portrait with friends – also insightful
    3. Favoured item/pet/location – also insightful
    4. Arbitrary image – reflective of persons personality
    5. Friends list is indicative of ‘who you are’. Pple are weary of those with ‘too many’, and take more seriously those with what is considered an ‘average’ amount

Additions welcome . . . .

I know I’m wary of people with “too many” friends. When someone I don’t know sends me a friend request I tend to always add them if we have a mutual friend and never add them if they have heaps of friends because I assume they make a habit of adding people they don’t know.
