The Confessions Of A Social Networker...

Which one are you?

To me, social networking is the best thing to be invented since sliced bread and Ben & Jerry's. It has enabled us to go past boundaries we never thought we could as well as providing a platform for expression from absolutely anyone in the world, regardless of where you are or who you are.

Now to combine my two favourite hobbies, people watching and social networking, I have come to the conclusion that you can categorize 5 different types of people on social networking sites. Which one are you?

1. The Silent Stalker. Now, to the everyday and ordinary, this is the person that creates a twitter account but has only tweeted around 5-20 times. You stand more of a chance of seeing tumbleweed blow across their Facebook page then any sign of activity. Not a single like was given. What this person actually does is lay low and dormant. Silently watching you. Slowly and secretly observing. Steadily grasping more information about your life then you know yourself. It's why their hair is so big, it's full of secrets.

2. The Everybody Look At Me. You know what's coming. This person tends to update their Facebook status once every 2-5 hours. In fact, if they haven't updated within the last 5 hours you automatically assume they are asleep or have lost internet connection. This person likes to make themselves known across Facebook. 'Sharing is caring' is taken too literally and they will happily inform you what they had for breakfast that morning to what type of pajamas they're wearing that night. Cool story bro, you should tell it more often.


3. The I'm Simply The Best. No one likes this kind of social networker. Don't be that social networker. This is the arrogant sod that sits on twitter, tweeting about how perfect their life is with their perfect relationship, perfect job, perfect hair, perfect WHATEVER. You know the kind. The one that gets the better job promotion or the one that starts and completes the assignment the night before it's due in and gets top marks.

4. The Trainwreck. The one who falls in and out of relationships and general life woes and is happy to bring you all down with them. What's a doom and gloom Facebook status here and there? No. Just stop. Pick yourself up off the ground, listen to a little 'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger' and get your weepy butt back out into the ocean.


5. The Eager Beaver. Everybody enjoys having an eager beaver as a Facebook friend as they will automatically 'like' every single thing you post. Whether it's a mug shot, woops, I mean 'selfie' or a witty Facebook status, you can always rely on this person to give you social networking support when the rest of Facebook wont. 4 likes for you Glenn Coco, you go Glenn Coco!



Personally I think I'm a 2. And occasionally a 4. What about you? Think you fit quite snug into these categories or weave between them? OR am I completely wrong and you can think of a better category? Let me know, I'd love to hear it ;)
