Facebook could predict if you will break-upPosted on: November 15, 2013 16:57:05
Facebook has quickly become a tool for people to be able to meet up with old friends and stay in touch with current ones.
However, a new study indicates that the social network might be able to tell whether or not you and your partner will last or whether you are going to break up.
This is according to a study from Cornell University, USA, that has worked out a way of finding out whether or not a couple will make the distance when it comes to staying together based on the friends that they have on the website.
Lars Backstrom and Jon Kleinberg looked at more than 1.3 million Facebook users to determine the unusual theory.
However, if you think that if you and your partner have the same friends then you are more likely to stay together - you'd be wrong. According to the duo, couples who have a lot of mutual friends on Facebook don't have the strongest connection, as their friends in common also needed to know each other well.
The pair called the method "low dispersion," meaning when your friends meet your partner's friends to form one large social group.
Speaking to the New York Times, Mr Kleinberg said: "A spouse or romantic partner is a bridge between a person’s different social worlds.”
By using this method, the duo were able to correctly identify who somebody’s spouse was 60 per cent of the time.
Couples who weren't included in the dispersion algorithm were 50 per cent more likely to break up at some point over the next two months, compared to those who had been identified by looking at the relationship between their mutual friends. However, Facebook isn't planning to use this information or include it on its website.
For those who are tired of looking at all the happy couples on Facebook, why not enjoy online dating while you snoop around on the social network? More and more people are finding love online and you could be next.
