If you want to receive more Likes on your Facebook fan page or personal wall the trick is to post positive content more than negative. On the other hand if you want more comments a few negative posts is the way to go.
The team at Help for Depression created an infographic that specifically examines how the way we post on Facebook affects the interaction we have with our Facebook friends.
The study finds for example that people with longer status updates who use the second person “you” and talk about sex and religion have the highest friends count. On the other hand people with negative and emotions responses who talk about family and use the first person “I” more tend to have less Facebook Friends.
Data for the study was culled from 83 13-year-old girls, which obviously means it’s a big bias but still worth a closer look. read more

Every year millions of Facebook users encounter various types of online ad scams, those scams can come in the form of applications that steal user information or through direct click links among other attempts. PC protector BitDefender has taken the time to share with us an infographic that showcases the top 5 Facebook scams and how they target their users.
Among the most interesting facts gathered, 34.7% of all Facebook scams come in the form of “see who’s following you” and other profile traffic insight scams, while 16.2% arrive from social gaming (with the likes of Cityville) and 14.1% come from “shocking images” that entice users to click-through to witness what ends up being some type of malware or other scam.
The graphic also showcases some of the most popular words used in Facebook scams, including (but not limited to): Wow, profile, killed, OMG, stalker, video, busted, stripping, cash, Zynga and pounds.
