The Seven States of Facebook

According to some recent research done by Peter Warden, and as reported by GigaOM, it appears you can break up Facebook users into seven distinct and geographically-relevant groups.

Pete gave each region its own distinct name and then encouraged them to fight in a battle royale brawl to the death!

That's not true: Pete seems like a nice enough guy.  But I wonder whether it's a good idea to point out these Facebook differences?  Doesn't the Northeast (aka Stayathomia) already have enough to squabble over with the South (aka Dixie)?

We have the Big East, they have the SEC.  We have White Castle, they have Krystal.  We have a permanent air of moral and intellectual superiority, they have a flag that offends us.

Facebook is supposed to bring people together online, not reinforce physical boundaries that already exist.  Sure, the Mormons like to congregate in Utah, but that doesn't mean we can't be friends on Facebook!

That said, Stayathomia representin', bitches!!!  We da best on Facebook!!  Nomadic West can suck it!
