After all, nobody wants to snooze through Mass alone. The average age gap between coupled men and women grows with the man’s age.From the male angle, an older dude is more likely to have a young girlfriend than one his age; a young man is likely to date someone close to his own age.This comments on itself, as does this further tidbit: In countries with more gender equality, the average age difference is much smaller. The length of a relationship strongly correlates with the likelihood that relationship will continue.According to a Facebook Data Science blog post about this result, “About half of all Facebook relationships that have survived three months are likely to survive to four years or longer.” And, as Diuk says, “If you’ve been in a relationship for one year, the probability that you’re going to split goes down by 80 percent.” What this finding doesn’t address: At what point do people declare their relationship to the Facebook Timeline?Matchmakers’ networks include lots of people who aren’t friends with each other.The way I choose to interpret this: matchmakers have to diversify their interactions, so as not to overwhelm any single one with their aggressive extroversion and statements about who would be perrrrfect for whom. In the lead-up to a relationship, the online interactions between two people ramp up like the first hill of a Six-Flags coaster.
Whether their communication involves sharing a Spotify playlist of breakup ballads or commenting on yet another selfie of you at the club (“looking for hotties”), true friends come through, virtually. On the other hand, it’s worth taking a second to consider where this data comes from.
Well according to Pew Research Center I am, thanks Pew…I use Facebook. I occasionally dip into Whats App, and sure I use Messenger to stay in touch with friends. But I really don’t get it, and that’s fine, I don’t need to get it. Follow me to keep up to date with the series :)We’ve also started to compile a handy list of articles all around bots. We’ve also been working on a CMS for bots called The Bot Platform.
And all in all, being absolutely delighted with the experience. I’m going to start writing down my thoughts about how bots can be used and how businesses can benefit from bots.
And Facebook’s data-science team is particularly interested in your romantic life.
They’ve been watching you hook up and break up and, according to a recent presentation by Facebook employee Carlos Diuk, they’ve noticed a few things about you.
