Facebook knows The Right Time for Love

Not the only thing it knows, right?


Facebook likes keep track of a lot of statistics, although all of it used to harvest it for better advertisement potential. But let’s not go into that. Much so because this news piece is about love and how…erm, Facebook understands it better than we do.

The social media giant has released a bunch of numbers and graphs that could be have been more relevant a month ago but is still pretty interesting nonetheless. It tells us of when the world likes to get into a relationship, when it likes to breakup (stay away from Fridays and Saturdays) and what day or month that this phenomenon occur.

I have bullet-pointed some of them:
- February 14 is responsible for 49% of new relationships.
- But so is April 1st, but they are usually pranks or fake, hence the massive dip the very next day.
- May through August is were new relationships take things a bit slow. It’s usually summer in most parts of the word and we don’t see how it is relevant to the cycle of nature. But it is. Maybe we just like to stay indoors more?
- As for days, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday are the golden days of love were new relationships are formed. Friday and Saturday are the break-up days. I somehow feel bad for Wednesday.

You can see the associated graphs below. They are way to complicated to0 understand 11pm in the night. You might have better luck.
