The goody-two-shoes among us say it's better to give than to receive. That's not true for the average Facebook user, though.

A new study finds that the average Facebook user gets more than
they give. That means more messages, more "likes," more comments.

Yes, even more "pokes."

Behind all that is Facebook's relatively small group of "power users," who do more than their share of tagging, liking and uploading. The report from the Pew Internet and American Life project comes out Friday, two days after Facebook filed for a $5 billion initial public offering of stock.

The study is the product of Pew's analysis of Facebook users'
activities for the month of November 2010. Respondents to a Pew phone survey gave researchers the permission to log their Facebook
use.
