What type of Facebook user are you?

A recent report by Ofcom called Social Networking : A quantitative and qualitative research report into attitudes, behaviours and use has identified five different types of users of Social Networking users, they are:

  • Alpha socialisers - They use sites in intense short bursts to meet new people
  • Attention seekers - Most likely to post photos and custome profiles
  • Followers - Want to keep up with their peers
  • Faithfuls - Use the site to rekindle old relationships
  • Functionals - Use sites for a particular purpose

Now the Ofcom report is massive so I wont suggest anyone reads it from cover to cover but some of the headlines contained within the report are interesting.
