Study Shows Men & Women Are Very Stereotypical on Facebook

A recent study on popular Facebook topics is a little more than embarrassing, with 'shopping' being the most popular women's topic, and, you guessed it, 'sports' being the most popular for men

Words often used by females on Facebook

The more things change, the more they stay the same. A recent study has compiled the largest collection of word usage on Facebook ever, and the results are not exactly breaking down gender stereotypes.

Gawker has posted a word cloud for men and women based on the study (anyone identifying as not male or female, as usual, seem to be flying under the status of 'relevant') that is a little embarrassing.

Men seem to really like Call of Duty, especially Black Ops, and the World Cup while completely ignoring things like food. Delightfully though, men seem to enjoy gossiping , even if they like to call it ‘smack talk,’ using the phrases "wishes he" and "thinks he" quite frequently.

While women seem to really like chocolate, boyfriends, shopping, and their hair, "wishes she" shows up much less frequently than for men, and they don’t use "thinks she" enough to even warrant being in the word cloud at all. Men also really love f-bombs, but I can understand why.

All this aside, I tend to agree with Gawker's Sam Biddle when he says, "Look at the words. They are you. If you're a man, you care about '...metal fuck girlfriend league wishes.'"

Ladies, you're partial to 'shopping excited love cute dress yayyyy.' Government, for example, is a blip in the men category and altogether nonexistent on the women side. As much as we can use social media, especially Facebook, for various causes and insights, we mostly use it to gossip and share our latest purchases.

That being said, my last post was "Thundercats were the koolest of katz," so I shouldn’t be talking.
