Facebook Is Taking Advantage Of Your Broken Heart

We all know Facebook knows way too much about us, but did you know that they're also trying to capitalize off of your broken heart? Yes, just in time for Valentine's Day, Facebook is using your personal information to help businesses market to you based on what you're going through.

The latest entry in the Moments That Matter part of Facebook on the Facebook IQ page is all about how marketers and businesses can reach you as you're dealing with a breakup.

So what if you're not updating your relationship status at every twist and turn? Facebook still knows what you're going through.

There's a spike in logins and visits to Facebook right before and after someone updates their status to "single." So if you want to steer clear of those pesky online dating ads, maybe avoid logging in for a while and just keep that relationship status to yourself.
