facebook-log-onAccording to a new study, Facebook status updates are more memorable than the human face.

Researchers found we have a remarkable memory for “microblogs.” We can understand and respond strongly to spontaneous ideas that spring forth from our friends.

We also have a very powerful mental updating ability – which is why so many people are hooked on social media like Facebook and Twitter.

Does this mean obituaries will soon include memorable status updates instead of photos?
