Infographics Reveal Scope of Pet Owners' Weirdness and Depravity

This would seem to mean people like Facebook, but in fact it could imply the opposite—that people think Facebook is amusing but disposable. Check out this other factoid: Given the choice of keeping their dog or keeping Facebook, just 7 percent of owners said they'd keep Facebook. So, there.
