Facebook Knows When You Will Break Up

by Siobhan O'Connor

November 4, 2010

David McCandless and the excellent Lee Byron have produced a chart that looks at when people will break up, according to data mined from 10,000 Facebook profile status updates. The findings are not particularly surprising—most people like to be single for spring break and breakups are most often announced on Mondays—but they are certainly fun. And it's nice to see that Christmas day is a lowpoint for announcing breakups (though the weeks leading up to it are not). You can read more about it here.
