    Great post! The joint social media count really gets me haha my husband has a friend who shares a Facebook account with his wife. I don’t get it and it bothers me a lot more than it should. If there’s trust issues, then why be married? If you met the guy, you’d be just as confused as we are as to why she makes him have a joint account with her.

      Thank you Keating, you made me laugh with your comment. I don’t like it at all and always thought it was weird, and when I was doing my research, I saw how indicative it can be of how the couple functions 🙂

    Interesting and a fun read. I was waiting for the ‘always moaning’ one as I feel many of my personal FB posts are me ranting and raving about something (like the hour on the live chat IT help today that was useless) Im hoping that selfies are loosing their popularity, as I had read about them being linked to narcissism – a fact I pointed out to my daughters 🙂

    • Hiba Boutari says:

      Haha the moaning one! Those are the different Facebook personality types – I will be making a list like that soon 😉 But do we all have them? Absolutely

  4. Haha! I do have around 1,000 facebook friends… and I will admit there are people on there that I don’t remember who they are. I do a lot of things like go to conferences and do plays where I meet people and I’m close to them for a couple of months, but then we don’t really see each other ever again. But I still leave them on facebook 😉

    • Hiba Boutari says:

      Becky! That part was only for those who do not have businesses or promotional needs. I have since edited the post to reflect that 🙂

  5. Hm. Wonder where bloggers fit into the mix as some sponsors want to know how many FB friends you have in addition to the followers on your page.

    • Hiba Boutari says:

      Hey there, I have since edited the part to reflect that it does not apply for those who need the thousands of friends for business or promotional purposes 🙂

  6. This is so interesting. I know people that have over a thousand friends on facebook and I’m always like really? But then again these are people that travel all over the world and I”m sure people at conferences and such. Wow, such a great read!

      Thank you for your feedback Nichole! I enjoy your posts as well and I’m glad you liked it 🙂

    I guess I should be thankful I don’t see myself in any of the profile types you featured. But I do recognize some people. 😉

  8. I think I’m a little of all of them. Lol

    • Hiba Boutari says:

      Donna, all of these apply ONLY if they are excessive 🙂 We all post pictures of ourselves and have friends, but too much of a good thing as they say 😉

  9. I don’t think over 300 Facebook friends means someone is desperate – I happen to know a lot of people and have a very large family so that makes up a ton of people 🙂

    I don’t think all of these things are necessarily as negative as they are here. However, they can be an indicator. I know very few people who have a facebook friend list under 300. Someone who posts infrequently could also just be enjoying life or very busy, too!

    I had a good chuckle with this post. Isn’t it amazing how far we have come with social media today? Frankly, if I could turn back the clock, I’ll join the league of Paranoid Narcissists; I think they’re the smart ones who didn’t fall for all the social media exposure s##$$#! 🙂
