 - Hmm, wonder Y there R massive break-ups right around Spring Break ... ??

@ graph
- Y-axis = Break-up Frequency
- X-axis = Time of Year

This chart tracks relationship trouble via Facebook status updates, which show a spike of breakups in the spring.


If you’re looking to predict just when your relationship is going to end, David McCandless has a way for you to do just that, using a chart he debuted at the TED conference in Oxford, England.  McCandless and a team of researchers poured over 10,000 Facebook status updates, searching for the phrases “breakup” or “broken up,” and compiled a chart detailing when your relationship is most likely to end publicly.  According to Facebook status updates, you’re most likely to be dumped after Valentine’s Day, before Spring Break, two weeks before Christmas, and randomly, April Fools Day.

Why those days?  Well, spring break is a time to party.  Valentine’s Day is a day in which a lot of couples end up calling things off as they can’t stomach another fake-romantic evening together.  Christmas is to avoid buying presents.  As for April Fools Day, your guess is as good as mine.  A sick joke, perhaps?
