The 10 Most Common Social Media Personality Types – Which One Are You? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that 36 percent of people surveyed in a recent poll admitted to posting TV or movie spoilers onto their favourite social media sites?

What if I told you that one in ten social networkers have been unfriended due to their prolific posting of political content, one in four Facebook users intentionally post status updates that are so vague that their friends are compelled to ask for more detail, and that almost a full quarter (24 percent) of young men admit to creeping on an ex’s social media profile at least once a month?

The way that we each behave on social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook is often very indicative of our true personality. Sure, many folks might act like an entirely different person in real life, but get some of these people in front of an online audience and all those real world reservations and social niceties go right out of the window. The protection of the internet empowers them to become who they really are (or, sometimes, choose to be), often with very irritating results for those unfortunate enough to be around them.

This infographic takes a closer look at many common social media personalities. How many of these folks are you following? Do you see yourself in this list? Take the test, and then hit the comments to let us know.
