What type of Facebook-er are you?
Living in the 21st century, Facebook has pretty much taking over our world. We have reached a point where we believe that if you do not have a Facebook, then you do not have a life. About hundreds of people join Facebook every day, making it one of the most visited websites in the world, with about 585 million active members. 585 million!

A typical “annoying-facebook-girl” would upload an album with 200 or more pictures titled “Mcdonaldz wd my Bff’z<333” or “OMG!

These creatures change their profile pictures almost every other day; their famous picture pose is the repulsive “Duck face”—they stick their lips...
