facebook predicts when your relationship will end

According to some disheartening data collected from Facebook status updates, patterns have surfaced related to break-ups.  I must admit, while it’s creepy when they abuse personal information …it’s useful and interesting to see results as a mass-data collection.  They do happen to have access to almost everyone’s personal life from all over the place and they can spot trends in the large numbers better than some skimpy survey on the subject.  And yet …I’m still not terribly interested in re-joining the Facebook universe myself.  Hmm.

It seems that relationships tend to end on Mondays, right before Spring Break, two weeks before Christmas, and before the summer holidays.  Basically any time someone isn’t happy in their relationship and is not looking to be tied down during fun-times (weekends and vacation heavy times) or major present giving time is when.

Ugh. You’ve been warned.
