1. The over-sharer
You have no problem with airing your dirty laundry on Facebook. Mailman pissed you off? Facebook it. Argument with a co-worker? Facebook it. People will go C R A Z Y talking behind your back about how you over-share, but refuse to comment on your posts to let you know, or simply delete you because, in actuality, they love the drama just as much as you do.
2. The Lurker
You’re just on this site to be nosy, and that’s okay. A lot of people don’t realize that you’re even on Facebook, because you never appear on their feed. You probably even ‘appear offline’ a lot, because you’re just so damn elusive. Coincidentally, you know exactly what’s going on with everyone around you, because you’re an observer. Watching. Waiting…
3. The Proud Parent
Do you feel the need to let all of your friends and co-workers know when your child has its first solid bowel movement? Uploading 45 consecutive pictures of your child in the same outfit, with the same facial expression, with the same background? Yeah, you’re the proud parent. You might have set your employment status to: Full-time mammy, or your middle name as ‘proud mammy’(or daddy, no sexism here). People probably say you’re annoying, but they’ll continue to like and comment on your stuff so, who’s the real loser here?
4. The Sports Nut
As long as you’ve got the right type of Facebook friends, you’re a great conversation starter. If you don’t, well, people’s eyes glaze over when seeing your posts.
5. The Cryptic
Constantly posting cryptic statuses, leaving your entire feed commenting ‘?’ or ‘expand on this!’? You’re a cryptic. You drive people insane, and people WILL be calling you an attention seeker behind your back (maybe to your face, depending on how brazen your friends are). You have them eating out of the palm of your hand. Don’t get too drunk with power.
