Your Facebook Friends Don't Care About You

A new study has found that most of your Facebook friends couldn't care less about you. Coincidentally, the same researcher claims that the same is true of your real world friends.

For his latest research, Dunbar analyzed a UK study of 3,375 Facebook users between the ages of 18 and 65. On average, folks had 150 followers but said that they could only count on 4.1 of them during an "emotional crisis," and only 13.6 ever express sympathy. Those numbers line up very closely with Dunbar's previous offline studies.
