2010 Facebook Relationship Status Changes

More Breakups Than New Relationships on Facebook in 2010

When you look at 2010 by the numbers, it looks like a brokenhearted year for Facebook users. Thirty-five percent more users changed their relationship status to "single" than to "in a relationship." Here's the breakdown:

  • 43.9 million people changed their relationship status to single
  • 3 million changed it to it’s complicated
  • 28.5 million changed their status to in a relationship
  • 6 million to engaged
  • 36.8 to married

Of course, that doesn't account for the three million people who already had "complicated" relationships, people who never change their status, and those who handle relationship-status changes by my preferred method: hiding it all together.
