How to Read a Person on Facebook
You can read a person by observing his body language, behavior and expressions. In the same way, you can read a person on Facebook or other social networking sites. Here are some tips to read a person on Facebook.
Facebook Profile Reveals Hidden Facts
A profile of anybody on Facebook reveals many facts. You just need to read it and study it. No, I am not talking just about what the person has written about himself or herself in about page. Actually I am talking about psycho-analysis of the person. If you learn to analyze the behavior and day to day activities of a person on Facebook, you can know many hidden facts about the person. One can read hidden facts of a friend, an employee, colleague and even of relatives and to be spouse. This may be very useful for everybody in taking decisions about the related persons.
What to Observe on a Facebook Profile?
To find the hidden facts about a person on Facebook, you have to consider, observe and study many things on his profile. Here is a list of some of the important factors which reveal hidden facts:
Name: Does the name of the person on the Facebook Profile appear real one? Or it is nick name or imaginary one?
As you know, our name is our most important identity in the world. If someone does not use his real name on his facebook profile, be sure that he does not want to reveal his identity. This fact can be confirmed by reading his About page and watching his profile photo.
Profile Photo: Is there a photograph of the person on his/her profile? Or the space for profile photo is blank? If there is a photograph, is it really the person's photograph, or is it a photograph of a celebrity, or just of a flower, icon etc.? If the photograph seems to be of the person himself, what things do it tells?
Like our name, the profile photo on facebook is also important. It is just like the photograph on an Identity Card or Passport. If a person on Facebook has not uploaded his photograph on his profile and the space is blank, be sure that he does not want to reveal his identity. Confirm this fact by reading his About Page and Name. If a person is using photograph of a celebrity as his own profile photo, he is a fan of the celebrity, and may be a worshiper.
If the photograph is actual, observe it. Is the face charming? Or the person in the photograph is nervous? Or the photograph is just casual?
About Page: Has the person given details about himself in about page? Or it is just blank or has he revealed very few things about himself?
If the About Page of a person on Facebook is blank, again it is sign of the fact that the person does not want to reveal his identity. If the page has some details of the person, but not all the details, the person is reserve minded. If the person has given some or many details but has not given his contact details like address and Cell Number, and details about his family, he is cautious.
Wall Posts: What type of matter the person posts on his profile or elsewhere?
The wall posts by a person on facebook reveal many hidden facts about himself. They tell us about the person's interests, knowledge, maturity, views and much more. The posts tell to which political and philosophical ideology the person belongs, or he is a free thinker.
If a person on Facebook copies and paste posts by others, as if they are his own, he is not able to express himself and he has not his own thoughts.
Likes, Shares & Comments: What type of comments the person likes? On which types of posts the person comments? What type of comments he gives?
This again reveals the same facts about a person which are described above in Wall Posts section. Moreover, if a person just likes and shares but do not comment on posts, it means the person is not able to express himself. If a person gives irrelevant comments, he do not understand the post.
The language of the posts and comments by a person reveals many facts about him, like maturity, understanding, temper etc. They also reveal linguistic skills and language command of the person.
Friends: What types of friends the person have?
A person can be judged by what type of friends he has. By studying a person's facebook friends, we can judge that to which social, economical & business class, political circle, and society the person prefers.
Groups & Pages: What types of groups and pages the person has joined and how much he is active there?
This again reveals the interests and likes, including political, social and religious ideologies of the person.
Frequency: How much time the person spends on Facebook?
If we are able to estimate a person's frequency on Facebook and how much time he spends there, and for what reasons, this may reveal that is the person addicted to facebook? or is he smart enough to use facebook to spread his ideologies, and promote his business or website?
Please note that you should not judge a person on facebook by using just one of the parameters I have given above. Use all or maximum number of the parameters. This will give you a fair idea about the person. You should not judge anybody in Black & White, as there are many other shades and probabilities. Same person can be very good or very bad, depending on circumstances. This article is written just to give you general idea of judging a person on Facebook. Further investigations in real are necessary, if you are going to deal with the person in real life.
