13 for 2013: Your Friends’ Facebook Status Updates in January

Facebook: We love to hate it and hate to love it.

But whether we love Facebook or hate it, we’re using it. As of January 2013, nearly 169 million Americans are Facebook users.  

That’s a lot of status updates. And in January, with the new year underway and everyone excited to talk about their resolutions and goals and how they plan on saving money, you’ve probably already seen a few more updates than normal.

Have you seen any of these status updates … or better yet, posted one yourself?
