Breaking up? Facebook knows what you want to hear

Heartbreak. We’ve all been there (even Valentine’s Day can’t save you from it) – but in a world that is so connected and social, a lot of times relationships that go sour find themselves reflected within our social media habits.

The most common scenario is when one partner is moving away due to a desirable job offer in another city, leaving behind the romantic relationship. This issue of choosing between romance and success has to do with priorities.
