What if social media were a high school? [Infographic]

Although I would argue that social media very much is a high school given some users’ behavior, that is beside the point. Flowtown created a silly infographic outlining the main social networks and which high school personality it would correspond with.

We’d like to know in comments- which social networks listed below do you use and do you agree with the personality assessment?

      Haha, well I use several of them, but most of my time is and was in the gossip girl / jock / debate arena.

    I use Twitter, not real excited to be called a gossip girl.
    All intertwined in Google, and yes, I tried the preppy thing (kind of a white Boyz 2 Men look)
    Definitely use Facebook, and wanted to be the jock in high school
    Learning YouTube, but was never an A/V nerd. Looking at my videos, I’m clearly still not.
    LOVE Flickr, have 0 artistic ability.
    Use Yelp very effectively, love to debate.
    Have a LinkdIn acct, but don’t really use it. Ran for president, but lost.
    Use WordPress, stayed an English geek through college
    Was on FourSquare, but saw too many kids get beat up by telling the world there whereabouts so I quit.
    All in all, pretty accurate!
