A new study from social media students at Thames Valley University has exclusively revealed that Facebook updates stating what a person is doing does not make them more interesting.

Moreover, the study went on to claim that if anything, constant boring updates about meals, snacks, sitting down, going to bed and having a cup of tea are actually more likely to cause the Facebook user in question to be deleted by a large number of their online buddies.

The news will come as a shock to many Facebook users who seem intent on documenting every aspect of their daily routine through status updates with the belief it will make their boring, tedious lives seem more interesting.

One user who wishes to remain anonymous expressed shock at the finding, "I tell people what I'm doing everyday on Facebook. I think it makes me more interesting, it shows I can turn on a computer and make a cup of tea. But now you've told me this, I just don't know what to believe."

Others seem to be in denial, with one user saying, "This is a load of rubbish. Everyone needs to know what I'm doing at every given opportunity. On average I get five 'likes' per day, which shows people do care."

The person in question then updated their Facebook status, stating, "OMG, jus spoke to sum1 bout Facebook status updates. Hw random? Goin out with ma girlies now. Yay!!!!!!!! :-) :-) :-) ;-) xxxx love ya xxxx"
