When do people break up most? Facebook data.

November 2, 2010

Have you ever wondered when people break up? You now have the answer. King of infographics, David McCandless and his team scanned over 10 000 status updates on Facebook.

Interestingly, people break up most before Christmas and during spring. There is also a dorky peak on the April’s fool day. As for the day of the week, people like breaking up on Mondays.

People break up least on Christmas. Who wants to be alone on Christmas, right? Other than that, for some reason, people break up least in August and September.

You should watch the whole presentation on YouTube, which includes other great examples of data visualizations.
