Facebook, Data Science and Valentine’s Day

Today is February 14th, also known as Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, depending on where you are in the world.  In some places it’s a holiday.  The day was first associated with romantic connotations thanks to Chaucer’s poetry in the 14th century. Today, in the U.S. and many other countries, it’s a day of cards, gifts, flowers, chocolate and more.

This week, Facebook’s Data Science page has been running a series of blog posts about Valentine’s Day and the data related to it. Here are links to the posts they have done so far:

February 10th:  Love and Religion


Feb 11th: The Age of Love


Feb 12th: Flings or Lifetimes? The Duration of Facebook Relationships


Feb 13th: Looking for Love by City
