Facebook Says You’ll Break Up on Monday

The treasure trove of personal data that is Facebook has yielded a more unusual finding: that you’ll break up with your girlfriend or boyfriend on Monday.


The chart above was done by designer David McCandless, who mined the social network for updates to learn more about when people break up. McCandless found that break ups usually happen on Mondays, and experience a spike just before Spring Break, summer and Christmas. On Christmas itself, however, the number fortunately dips.

While interesting in its own right, TIME notes that Facebook isn’t a representative sample—so take this as a curiosity rather than proper study.
