Infographic shows not much liking going on at Facebook

Facebook has been making some changes recently to its privacy settings that have left some users confused. We have also heard that many parents are helping their children who are under age get access to the site. Today we have an infographic that shows there is not much liking going on at Facebook.

The guys over at ZDNet are reporting that research by Crowd Science, has found that Facebook users are not liking much content. It was found that no single type of Facebook feature received Likes from over twenty percent of the sites users. This was from a study from a random selection of 1,224 Facebook users.

If you study the infographoic below you will see that fourteen percent of the people surveyed didn’t even use Facebook in the first place. But despite this it still shows that all the content listed is still Liked by fewer than twenty percent of the sites users.

The study doesn’t find too much that is too surprising though, as personal content gets more attention. Sixteen percent of those asked did say they Liked content such as comments, pictures, and other Wall posts. This was followed by twelve percent Liking videos, ten percent non-brand pages, and nine percent for brand pages.

Of those who Liked brand pages more or those users were younger and spent more time on the net. More than a quarter who reported Liking on Facebook did so because they wanted to show their support, or enjoyed what was being shown or said.

What is the biggest reason you decide to Like something?

Simplicity is NOT the current Facebook. Adding features, security, and customization is great but not at the sacrifice of ease of use. It is currently complicated enough that I have a difficult time navigating through all the layers to get to areas I need to in order to turn off, block, and enable features. I am a computer consultant with 25 years experience so that is saying something.
