Facebook study shows Facebook users like moving fingers while staring at screens

A fellow staff member is a little bit anti-facebook and sent a link to me the other day. It is about a study finding that adds a tally mark to the "reasons to stay off Facebook" column (summary: Facebook users are narcissists).

Of course, there are a lot of Facebook studies coming out lately. In fact, the study she sited was dated August 2010. But lo and behold, just this month, another study comes out showing Facebook helps your self-esteem.

And then there is this study that just dropped last week: "Most Americans have Facebook, study says"

Here are my predictions for Facebook studies we'll soon be reading about:

"Study shows people more likely to recommend Facebook studies that reinforce their native preferences about Facebook than those that don't."

"Study shows Facebook studies often disproven by future Facebook studies"

"Study shows Facebook study data can be used to prove two opposing viewpoints"

"Study shows Facebook users behave in ways that reflect the culture at large"

"Study shows Facebook would be less polarizing if it were called 'Starbucks'"
