‘A’ stands for ‘Attention’

When I check out my Friend List on Facebook, their names are listed in alphabetical order. So naturally, the first names I see are always the “A” names. I hope they love all this attention!! I wonder though… do people with with names starting with A actually get more profile views? And listing people in alphabetical order happens all over the place… does this have a psychological affect akin to the effect of birth order, height, and other such factors?
