These graphs will get you laid

I just discovered the blog of OKCupid, a dating site (via @billwscott if you must know – research purposes only!)

It’s got tons of fascinating insights – drawn from OKCupid’s usage data – about people’s social behaviour, identity and dating preferences. Plus a few predictable findings, naturally.

It blows my mind to think of the implications these kinds of datasets could have for social science research. Imagine what researchers could do with, say, Facebook usage datasets if made publically available.
