We all remember the cliques that made up high school — the jocks, the brains, the cheerleaders and the marching band. Each had their own interests and personalities that set them apart.
So let’s just call social media the high school of the Internet.
Web design company Wix took a look at each social network and found out which sites were the popular gang and which ones were the high school gossips. They found that social media stereotypes were built on what we all were sharing.
Wix dubbed Facebook the high school quarterback because of the site’s reputation for instigating cyberbullying — In 2012, 52% of students reported being bullied on the site. And in 2011, the percentage of students who Liked “drugs” was up dramatically.
In no surprise, YouTube was the drama enthusiast, but Wix also said that YouTube isn’t rolling in dough. Though Google+ has its share of money, being called the “rich kid.” But Google+ isn’t so popular, according to Wix — 30% of people who write a post on the site never return to write a second one.
And in every school, there’s the “flirt.” Wix says Instagram takes that role, mostly because of the amount of semi-nude pics and “me” hashtags.
