INFOGRAPHIC: Who Are Facebook's Biggest Haters?

Over the past couple of days, it has pretty much been established that Facebook users are not big fans of the litany of changes introduced by the social network this week (understatement!). But some demographics dislike things more than others.

Opinion-based social community SodaHead gathering the opinions of more than 1,000 voters Thursday and broke down the Facebook dislikes into demographic categories.

Overall, 84 percent of respondents voted “lose it,” with only 16 percent opting for “like it.”

On the flip side, the following demographics were unanimous in voting to “Lose It”: widowed (11 respondents), expecting children (3), clerical (3), military (7), public safety (5), 4’5″ and shorter (1), 4’6″-4’11″ (3), and 6’6″ or taller (3).
