Facebook users love sex!

Shira Lazar of CBSnews.com reports that Dan Zarella has written an algorithm that analyzes social media posts and create a psychological profile of the poster. And according to his analysis of 12,000 posts (posts, not users posts), Facebook users love sex. I have to wonder if his sample is large enough to be statistically significant, and how he selected them, but it still puts that English researchers conclusions about Facebook and syphilis in a new light.

I also have to wonder how many of those people posting about sex will have reason to regret it later.
