Why Facebook Really is Like High School – The Daily Beast

The Daily Beast’s one-month experiment into Facebook’s news feed yielded the following discoveries:

  1. A bias against newcomers
  2. “Most Recent” doesn’t tell the whole story.
  3. Links are favored over status updates, and photos and videos trump links.
  4. “Stalking” your friends won’t get you noticed.
  5. Raise your visibility by getting people to comment.
  6. It’s hard to get the attention of “popular kids.”
