The headline is missing an "are"
 
2013-03-13 04:39:33 PM  
There are smart people on Facebook?
 
2013-03-13 04:40:16 PM  
I smrt. I like curly fries.
 
2013-03-13 04:41:02 PM  
I can see how there are metrics that show Likes, but how do they determine from Facebook that these people are smart?

I worked at Arbu's for a while and I don't recall the customers being particularly bright.

To be fair, anyone that would patronize a cheap Indian knockoff of a popular restaurant chain is pretty suspect to begin with.

/The real one, though, is food of the gods.
 
2013-03-13 04:48:18 PM  
But then, there are only 21 smart people in the world.
That's how many people have Liked large curly fries.
 
2013-03-13 04:50:26 PM  
Or as I call them, pubic fries.
 
2013-03-13 04:50:41 PM  
fat people like any fries
 
2013-03-13 04:51:43 PM  
I like curly or shoestring.  Hate tater tots, unless they're in nachos.

Waffle, motherfarker.

/If you "Like" your favorite kind of french fry on Facebook, how intelligent can you really be?
 
2013-03-13 04:52:21 PM  
Sweet potato fries + jalapeno ketchup ftw.
 
2013-03-13 04:54:18 PM  
Fess up: how many people just logged into Facebook for the sole purpose of Liking curly fries?
 
2013-03-13 04:55:07 PM  
The conclusion: Smart people like curly fries because they're intelligent.

/the people, not the fries

I'm smart enough to disregard facebook all together,  Because the people I care about already know such mundane facts about me, and no one else gives two shiats. Whats more, is that I am not so utterly conceited  as to think online "friends" should give a shiat as to whether or not I like curly fries.
 
2013-03-13 05:10:14 PM  
Of course smart people like curly fries. The curled nature of the fry allows you to fit more potato in a smaller space.

Thus making them good value for money.
 
2013-03-13 05:11:48 PM  
Curly fries tend to be spicy, which makes them superior.
 
2013-03-13 05:12:34 PM  
With or without horsey sauce?

mmmmm horsey sauce.

cgraves67: I can see how there are metrics that show Likes, but how do they determine from Facebook that these people are smart?


They look at the average length of the sentences people use in posts, the amount of spelling and/or grammar errors, the content of the posts and then finally they look at whether or not there is information about what school they graduated from and in which subject.

According to another article I read on this study, they correlated 11 million distinct likes across over 60,000 people. Someone needs to take a statistics course and read about what happens when you have more input variables than samples.

Waffle fries have maximum surface area for adhesion, for folks who believe fries are just a ketchup delivery system.

"Low intelligence, it said, was indicated by "Sephora," "I Love Being A Mom," "Harley Davidson," and "Lady Antebellum."

I don't know that they needed any sort of study to determine that...
