A Facebook Taxonomy

CNN’s Brandon Griggs is calling out “The 12 Most Annoying Types of Facebookers.” For example:

The Chronic Inviter. “Support my cause. Sign my petition. Play Mafia Wars with me. Which ‘Star Trek’ character are you? Here are the ‘Top 5 cars I have personally owned.’ Here are ’25 Things About Me.’ Here’s a drink. What drink are you? We’re related! I took the ‘What President Are You?’ quiz and found out I’m Millard Fillmore! What president are you?”

It feels like everybody I’ve known for the past 40 years joined Facebook this summer. They are dear and lovely people. But being dear and lovely doesn’t necessarily make a person immune from carrying on like one of the 12 types Griggs describes in his article.
