The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Wolverhampton in England, and published in the August issue of Computers in Human Behavior. The analysis was based on the personality of 100 people aged between 17 and 55 years - 70% women - and how to behave on Facebook.


Data analysis showed that neurotic people - and also the most outgoing - post more photos on the social network than the rest of the internet. The difference is that the more extroverted delivers images that are usually to change the cover photo of the profile, while the neurotic - defined as "having a temperamental nature and are susceptible to stress and anxiety" - tend to publish a larger number of photos by album.
The study's author, doctoral student Azar Eftekhar, points out that the behavior may indicate a need to compensate for deficiencies in other skills. "People neurotic need for approval, but are not good communicators and have no social skills," recalls the expert.
Moreover, the researchers found that more conscientious people postavam more videos and created photo albums, in addition to automatically generated by Facebook. These people are more disciplined, organized and goals, and they use more editors photos and videos, Eftekhar points.
Another finding of the study was to identify similarities between the functioning of human relations both in and outside the Facebook social network. People who avoid discussions, for example, attract more comments on your posts and tanned and one of the proposed explanations for this behavior is that Facebook users respond to the "kindness" of these people commenting and enjoying your photos more often.
"The popular culture of Facebook says enjoy and comment and require careful attention to the events in the life of every friend, as who like fan pages or product pages to express admiration," concludes Eftekhar.
