Final Note

Facebook is watching as you laugh

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.” 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
