Facebook: Anthropological Fieldwork in Cyberia

You may not know whether your new love is perfect, but Facebook does. A recent study of the social media giant’s user data reveals that in the first three months of a budding relationship, men and women exhibit certain behaviors before falling head over heels. Leading up to “Facebook official” status, they post more often on one another’s timelines, and their online interactions drop when they finally get together. The anthropologist matchmakers at Facebook — who also say it’s possible to spot romantic

trends by religion and age — are giving today’s online flirts hope for loving tomorrows.
