List Rules Vote up the people you think absolutely everybody Facebook-searches out of curiosity.

You've had that embarrassing and sad moment when it’s late and you’re cruising around Facebook and you start looking up everyone from your past. In fact, some of the most common Facebook searches are for ex-lovers and people you haven’t seen since elementary school. If that’s how you spend your time you shouldn’t feel bad, it’s perfectly normal to be curious about people that you haven’t seen in a long time. Take a break from trying to find your old high school mascot and check out the people we all look up on Facebook.

Sometimes surreptitiously looking people up on Facebook can be helpful if you’re entering into a new situation. Maybe you’re getting into a new relationship, or there’s a small time celebrity having a complete mental breakdown on social media and you just need to read their insane ramblings. But other than that, the type of people everyone looks up on Facebook are usually people from the past or new folks about whom you're curious. Keep reading to see if the kind of people that you look up on Facebook are the same kind of people everyone else looks up.
