I had my Facebook participation analyzed today.  It was really kind of interesting.  It analyzed 7,372 status updates and came up with this data:

Where do you post from?

99% of your posts come from Facebook.com and 1% come from Twitter. The average person posts from Facebook.com 58% of the time.  You post most often in the afternoon.

Here are my most talked-about subjects:

(Interesting that movies ranks so high, since I haven't seen a movie this year and barely any for the last 3 years...I wonder if they are lumping theatrical productions in with moving pictures.  They must be.)

My posts are most often...

Verbose?  Who me?

You post about 88 statuses per month.

The average person posts 12.8 statuses per month. You posted the most statuses in one day on May 21, 2009 with a total of 15 statuses.

This information doesn't surprise me.

I see there is no category for the over-60 group, and I suspect many of my friends are over 60.

Not sure if that was interesting to anybody but me, but I found it fun.  If you're on Facebook, you can have your own data analyzed at Zeeb.ly (sadly you do have to give up some permissions to do it.  I almost never do, but I was curious this time...)

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
