New study: Facebook knows you

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

Facebook could know you better than your own family, according to researchers at the University of Cambridge and Stanford.

Research has found a computer can determine your personality better than your loved ones by using your Facebook "likes" to judge your character.

The findings showed that by analyzing just 10 "likes," a computer could predict a person's personality more accurately than a coworker. 

With 70 "likes," the computer could predict a personality better than a friend. 

And with 150 "likes," it could know someone even better than a family member.
