Oh Women And Their Facebook Friends

I gotta say, I’m with a lot of women on this one. Read this interesting article about how women really feel about their Facebook friends. I found myself nodding along in my head as I read this. If you’re one of my Facebook friends, I’m not talking about you (I love all your interesting thoughts and pictures). -Rich

When it comes to Facebook, we have friends, and we have “friends.” A recent survey found that for many women on Facebook, their true feelings about many of their Facebook friends might be less than friendly.

Daily deals site Eversave talked to 400 women about their Facebook relationships. The company originally conducted the survey as market research on the social network’s influence on the daily deals ecosystem, but Eversave was surprised to uncover the love/hate relationship between women and their online friends.

For example, the majority of female respondents said they had at least one friend who was a “drama queen” on Facebook. A majority also said they had at least one obnoxiously “proud mother” as a Facebook friend.

Most women — 83% of respondents in this survey — are annoyed at one time or another by the posts from their Facebook connections. For these respondents, the most off-putting post was some kind of whine; a full 63% said complaining from Facebook friends was their number one pet peeve, with political chatter and bragging coming in a distant second and third.

The respondents also said at least one of their Facebook friends tended to:

Share too many mundane updates too often (65%)

“Like” too many posts (46%)

Inappropriately or too frequently use Facebook to promote causes (40%)

Project false information or images of a perfect life (40%)

These kinds of Facebook archetypes have become part of the cultural lexicon. We recently covered an amusing music video about Facebook “types.” But it’s fascinating to see these characteristics quantified by the women who get teed off by them.
