On Facebook, Women <3 Shopping

And men love cursing, according to study.

As much as we like to deflect gender stereotypes, you all are really perpetuating them on Facebook. According to an analysis of all the words Facebook users write on the site, women are super girly and men are super burly. According to the study, females use more emotion-laden words while men prefer objects and expletives. A sampling of favorite female terms include: “shopping,” “yay,” “soooo,” “<3” and “EXCITED.” Men prefer variations of “f—k,” “xbox,” “himself,” and—interestingly—“wishes he.”
