As strange it may sound to an educated person, the possibility to be lonely "depends" on your name. In fact, we'll talk about love and relationship, or rather about what social networks' data can tell us about it. That is as if we say: "The possibility to be hit by car if your name is Sergey is higher than if you were called Kostya!" Sounds weird, right? Unscientific, at the very least. So, we'll talk about the most unexpected and counterintuitive observations you can do using data analysis in social networks. Sure, we'll cover the statistical significance of such observations, bot influence, and false correlations.
