Top 10 Internet Psychology posts for 2013

It has been a busy year on this website; so far in 2013 I have posted 781 items, an average of just over two posts every single day. Not bad, considering I rarely post at weekends.

However, some posts have been more popular than others – inevitably. So here is my Top 10 list of posts for 2013, based upon the numbers of people reading them.

The Number One post on my site is something I wrote back in March 2012, Social Media Profile Pictures are More Important Than Your Text. And the Number Two post of all time on my website is something I wrote at the beginning of 2009 – When Did the World Wide Web Start?
