Women Prefer Facebook Over Bathroom Basics

According to a survey conducted by the cable TV network Oxygen, 36-percent of its young female participants admitted to accessing their Facebook accounts in the morning immediately before brushing teeth or using the toilet. The survey--consisting of 1600 18-34-year-old social network users--also discovered that more than half (57-percent in fact) spent more time talking to people online than they did face-to-face.

That's not all the survey found. Apparently 37-percent of the participants have fallen asleep with their PDA in their hands, while 26-percent of the surveyed women also admitted to getting up in the middle of the night to read text messages. Other statistics revealed that 37-percent accidentally texted something embarrassing to the wrong person whereas 56-percent use texting as their main form of communication.

Surprisingly, 32-percent think that posting photos of themselves or others on Facebook using obscene gestures is appropriate--42-percent said that images of them visibly intoxicated was just as appropriate even though a whopping 63-percent actually use Facebook as a career networking tool. Over half of the women in the survey even admitted to keeping track of their "frenemies."

Twitter also saw heavy statistics in Oxygen's survey. 56-percent on the participants use Twitter as their main source of news and current events. 74-percent said it wasn't okay to start an argument on Twitter whereas 69-percent said that it's okay to load up the site with TV show spoilers.

Although Oxygen's survey actually grilled participants between 18 and 54, the final numbers focused on the 18 to 34 group. For the full list of results, head here.

    Big surprise, women are crazy and annoying. We needed a survey for this?

    I wonder when lifetime is going to do a "You raped my stolen baby" survey.

    Sad what the meaning of "social" has turned into these days. But at the same time I'm not surprised by the results of the survey.

    Survey: 90% of male tech users totally unsuprized that Oxygen users fall asleep with phones, take them with them in the bathroom and view text messaging and Oprah as the height of human accomplishment.

    "Bathroom" is only mentioned in the title. How do you make the connection stated in the title without anything to prove it from within the article?

    Neither do I.

    That's two of us left in the world ...

    After browsing the rubbish on my wife's facebook account I think I have sucessfully dodged what has become some kind of monster threatening to takeover the minds of the masses.

    Forget SkyNet ... we should be more worried about Facebook.

    Just kidding ... like AOL it is a fad that will be just as wortheless in a few years time.

    its too bad that politically correct adults have to take control of our lives by firing people and putting other people in the "dog house" for trying to stay connected with their friends and having fun posting their possibly obscene pictures on facebook. come on, lets live in a cubicle our whole lives shall we? pretty soon, the whole world will be required to know everything about someone 24/7, otherwise they will never get a job anywhere in life. Prison sentence would seem more logical for anyone posting a picture of themselves intoxicated on facebook. I guess we might as well get completely rid of social networking. its just another tool for co-workers to keep in check, and political bosses to create a tyranny.
