Facebook Posts Show When Couples Split


When do people breakup? David McCandless performed an analysis of 10,000 Facebook postings and status updates and discovered that:

Most breakups are announced on Mondays; There is a big peak in breakups right before Spring Break; People like to start the summer being single; There is a run up in splits ups right before Christmas, but the fewest breakups occur on Christmas Day.

Though I suspect the study was based upon British Facebook postings, the findings are consistent with my casual observations. For instance, I have noticed that I receive the majority of my new client inquiries on Mondays and Tuesdays and right after the major holidays.
