How to Tell if Someone Is Lying #HBR - data is beautiful

Source: To accurately infer another’s intentions, you need to look for  a set  of cues — gestures that together can more accurately predict or reveal motivation.

Source : This is the Facebook view of the world of relationships which start with a period of courtship on Facebook ( e.g messages are exchanged, profiles are visited, posts are shared on each other's timelines.) = snooping.  The graph shows the average number of timeline posts exchanged between two people who are about to become a couple. We studied the group of people who changed their status from "Single" to "In a relationship" and also stated an anniversary date as the start of their relationship. 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 int

Why can we say this; well all (3.4bn) of us love our mobiles and just get on with it.
