Facebook thinks, I'm a Cat-Person. But I'm not.

Facebook-Research hat sich der wichtigen Frage gestellt, welche charakteristischen Merkmale Hunde- und Katzen-Liebhaber unterscheidet. Laut deren Ergebnis bin ich eindeutig ein Katzenliebhaber, dabei sind Hunde den Viechern in allen Belangen haushoch überlegen und auch sonst tausendmal geiler und liebenswerter sowieso. Das macht mich dann wohl zu ’nem Hund in ’nem Katzenfell, oder sowas.

Cat people seem to have more indoor activities: They disproportionately like books, TV, and movies (measured in terms of Facebook Page likes). And cat people are especially fond of fantasy, sci-fi, and anime, while dog people like love stories and things about, well, dogs.

The charts below show the proportions of fans for books, TV shows, and movies, comparing the ratio of dog- to cat-people fans, accounting for the fact that there are slightly more dog people on Facebook. Books that cat people disproportionately like, such as Dracula and World War Z have longer blue bars off to the left, while books that dog people disproportionately like, such as Marley and Me all have longer green bars off the the right. If equal proportions of cat and dog people like a book, like, say, Hunger Games, no bar is visible.

catbooks

Sample of books disproportionately liked by cat- (blue bars to the left) or dog-people (green bars to the right). Books equally appreciated by both, such as The Great Gatsby, have no visible bars. Cat people are disproportionately fans of fantasy and dystopia, while dog people really like books about dogs (Marley and Me, Lessons from Rocky). Scores are based on the proportion of Facebook Page fans.

catmovies

Sample of movies disproportionately liked by cat- (blue bars to the left) or dog-people (green bars to the right). Movies equally appreciated by both, such as Frozen, have no visible bars. Cat people are disproportionately fans of sci-fi and fantasy, while dog people show a preference for love stories. Scores are based on the proportion of Facebook Page fans.

catshows

Sample of TV shows disproportionately liked by cat (blue bars to the left) or dog-people (green bars to the right). Shows equally appreciated by both, such as Seinfeld, have no visible bars. Cat people are disproportionately fans of anime, while dog people disproportionately watch shows with colorful characters. Scores are based on the proportion of Facebook Page fans.
