What does your facebook status reveal about your emotional state?

Believe it or not, but your facebook status can say a lot more than you write. If you are a regular facebook status updater (sounds like a new profession) like me, it can say a lot about your personality. Most of the time you are unaware of what it might filter out to the other person reading it. As everyone looks at one thing differently, it is funny how and what your status update would seem to the person reading it. Also, a lot of people you havn’t met for a long time, also get a feel of your personality or the emotional state you are going through and then you see a barrage of supportive comments start to pour through. Amazing !

Have a quick read of how some of the status updates might appear to others. Funny Read but makes sense.
