AngryTeacher: I was alone at my local dive bar a while back. I like listening to everyone else's conversations when I do that. One lady broke up with her boyfriend because he took three hours to accept her friend request on Facebook.


Sounds like he dodged a bullet in a big way.

I have a policy of not being facebook friends with people I date. It's surprising how some women take offense to it.

I am friends with people I have dated in the past, and man that has come in handy for the "he dumped me, come over and watch a movie" messages. Yes indeedy.

nickerj1: Facebook: Making money off bullshiat data

The avg posts per day drops from 1.67 (single) to 1.53 (relationship)?

Can we say.... not statistically significant?  Who can actually perceive a difference between 1.67 posts/day to 1.53 posts/day?

shiat, Jeremy is posting .14 times less per day for the last two weeks, he must be seeing someone!

Granted, I do agree with the ultimate conclusion: "People in a relationship use facebook less".  However, everyone under the sun already knew that.


Exception: New mothers.

Nobody posts more, because Facebook is silent entertainment while the baby sleeps. Plus "Omg isn't that cute my little angel shat everywhere!"

Unless Facebook is watching my porn usage without permission (which it probably is, let's be honest), they're still gonna be wrong.

The day you post snarky remarks whether targeted or not, and your ex replies back on Facebook, you know it isn't going to last.


/don't air your dirty linen folks, nobody comes out looking good, and depending on how personal the attacks become, your friends might not trust you in not doing the same to them
