The five types of people you can't escape on Facebook3/3/2013
It's a sad fact of the modern world that we often hear more from people through their Facebook status updates than from, well, talking. But on the plus side, it’s now way easy to classify every one of our friends as a Facebook personality type. Here are the five types of people who have been showing up in our newsfeeds lately.
1. THE ETERNAL OPTIMIST
If life gives them lemons, they won’t talk about them on the Internet. They love their friends, they love their job, they love prancing in fields of flowers and sunshine, and more than anything, they love telling us all about it. Cue the rest of the Internet vomiting.
2. THE DOWNER
The most depressing person you never actually see but hear from all day long because they post about their depressing life all day long. Most frequent offenders include the recently dumped, people who don’t understand why their friends won’t text them back, and writers of research papers.
3. THE RELATIVE
You know, the one that you don’t really know that well but who friended you and now "likes" everything you’re tagged in and tries to plan family reunions based on the comments of your posts, but you can’t delete the comments or anything because it's family, you know?
4. THE ACTIVIST
They’ve got causes and they want YOU. They’re known to repost everything they read ever, because by constantly uploading pictures of trees with inspiring quotes and berating the Internet to "share if you care," they're doing their part.
5. THE EATER
That person who posts pictures of food All. Day. Long. Because all of us LOVE to read about what is currently being broken down in the stomachs of someone we sort of know.
Yes, we could just unfriend them. But then we wouldn't be able to spend all day laughing at other people's status updates. Post on, friends!
