Not that we ever do this ourselves, you understand. (Facebook)
EVER SNOOP OTHER people’s Facebook likes? Ever feel like maybe they tell you something about a person?
Well, you’re not wrong. Researchers in the US analysed the Facebook profiles of 58,000 volunteers and matched their likes against their personal traits.
They found that you could tell the difference between gay and straight men in 95 per cent of cases based on their Facebook likes; black people and white people in 88 per cent; and US political allegiance in 85 per cent.
