Oh, the Advantages of 500 Million Users: Facebook Knows When Your Relationship With Your Significant Other Will Breakup

Nov 3, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Facebook knows when you’ll be dumped, CNN reports.

According to the story, a British journalist studied "10,000 Facebook status updates for the phrases ‘breakup’ and ‘broken up.’They found two big spikes on the calendar for breakups. The first was after Valentine’s Day — that holiday has a way of defining relationships, for better or worse — and in the weeks leading up to spring break. Maybe spring fever makes people restless, or maybe college students just don’t want to be tied down when they’re partying in Cancun."

The number one day for breakups? Monday, the article says.

The least likely day of the year for breakups? Christmas Day.
