Facebook and it's all-knowing-ness is getting even creepier.
They decided they wanted to know how people express laughter online. (Because, you know, on the internet no one can hear you laugh.)
Anyway, I do recommend reading the whole note from the Facebook research people: 15 percent of people included laughter in a post or comment the week they did the study.
The most common laugh is "haha," followed by various emoji and "hehe."
Age and gender play a role. Young people and women prefer emoji, whereas men prefer longer "hehes."
