Facebook’s Data Science team has published a thought provoking post that examines the statistical correlation between couples’ timeline posts and their burgeoning relationships.
By looking at how the frequency of timeline posts varies in the days leading up to and following the start of a new relationship, the team has identified a sort of digital courtship curve:
During the 100 days before the relationship starts, we observe a slow but steady increase in the number of timeline posts shared between the future couple. When the relationship starts (“day 0”), posts begin to decrease. We observe a peak of 1.67 posts per day 12 days before the relationship begins, and a lowest point of 1.53 posts per day 85 days into the relationship. Presumably, couples decide to spend more time together, courtship is off, and online interactions give way to more interactions in the physical world.

This is the anti-path/fb Paper approach to design. They’ve gone ahead, curated, and built the whole shebbang. With perfect pixels and manicured swipes, the apps look great (I’m actually extremely envious of their design team talent!), but I’ll never use them again. There’s no room for me to make it mine. — Eric Boggs: Let Them Add The Drapes (via garychou)
Amen. I’ve always thought that apps that let people play (ie. original Facebook, barely designed, free form wall) empowers people to feel like they’re creating for themselves. Perfectly crafted, visually stunning experiences make people afraid that they’ll break something so pretty.
One of the best pieces of code I’ve ever written:
