It's official: Ad people are not like the rest of us

It's official: Ad people are not like the rest of us

According to a study commissioned by San Francisco-based advertising agency Heat, advertising and marketing types are pretty unique in their use of social media. 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, ad types are three times more likely to pay attention to brands on Facebook and Twitter.

But – more interestingly – they're also much more likely to do drugs (26 percent vs 3 percent of the general public), throw up from excessive drinking (37 percent vs 9 percent) and hook up with a colleague (26 percent vs 8 percent).
