Funny Whatsapp miss you status lines? Searching for Status Updates That Will Make You Think? Searching for some status update inspiration? I won’t bore you with stories about where these came from; I’ll just give you a list of funny and sarcastic statuses. I have tried to include the authors for the lines I did not develop on my own. And hey, if you know the source of an unattributed quote, feel free to leave that info as a comment at the bottom. “Oxymoron: When an astronaut feels under the weather.”

“A train station is where the train stops. A bus station is where the bus stops. On my desk, I have a work station…” – Social responses to status updates were captured by observing direct social feedback (i.e. likes and commenters) and (2) by informant reports on the interpersonal appraisal of participants’ status updates by their friends. In a German and a US sample, for direct social feedback neither extraversion nor social anxiety emerged as significant predictors.

“Similar to a snack temporarily reducing hunger until the next meal, social snacking may help tolerate the lack of ‘real’ social interaction for a certain amount of time,” the researchers wrote in a paper published last month in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.

One element of Facebook that we may not realize is how often we use the Like to affirm something about ourselves. In a study of more than 58,000 people who made their likes public through a Facebook app, researchers discovered that Likes could predict a number of identification traits that users had not disclosed: “Feeding people’s “likes” into an algorithm, information hidden in the lists of favorites predicted whether someone was white or African American with 95% accuracy, whether they were a gay male with 88% accuracy, and even identified participants as a Democrat or Republican with 85% accuracy. The ‘likes’ list predicted gender with 93% accuracy and age could be reliably determined 75% of the time.”

You realize Facebook is bigger than yourself and that life is actually not all about you, which is quite a feat in this society. Congratulations on being a bearable and lovely human being. If you’re someone whose status updates are just a barrage of selfies, then I have news for you: It’s time to get some help. A study from earlier this year found that obsessive selfie posting is indicative of narcissism and, I’m sorry to say, psychopathy. Oh, well. How can someone’s life be infused with so much drama? You’re actually the one person on Facebook that people love to hate watch when it comes to statuses, because God only knows what will come next. See extra details on http://status.desi/.
