The Facebook Breakups Chart! [video + infograph]

TED talk is here once again, and it leads to new realizations of relationships… worldwide!

McCandless whipped out the chart during a TED talk this past summer. Apparently, he and his team scraped 10,000 status updates for the phrases “break up” and “broken up,” and made the following discoveries: 1). A ton of people break up before social occasions like Spring Break and the summer, 2). Mondays aren’t just the start of the work week — they are the end of many a relationship, 3). People have the decency not to dump their significant others on Christmas Day.” ~ Mashable

Interesting: The Boom of Social Sites Visualized [image]

A fun visualization by Focus magazine about …“the explosion of social networking sites over the past decade has facilitated a transformation in the way we communicate with each other. Here’s a list of some of these communities with over 1 million users, both active and defunct.” It’s ironic how I almost never heard about most of the sites on this list!

Do you think there are many other active social communities that we don’t know about? How many of them can help your business? And what is the best way to choose between them to best fit your business needs?
