Revealed: The four most popular days to get engaged

According to research by Facebook, the three most popular days to get engaged are Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and Valentine’s Day.

The social media site collected data from over 2.5 million users in order to discover any patterns related to modern engagements.

In addition to the most popular days, the site found that one-third of the users got engaged in the months of November and December.

It also found that the average age for engaged couples is 24 years old.

Analysing the behaviour of the engaged couple, Facebook found that the pairs’ social media activity differs from that of single individuals.

For example, while it expectedly found that engaged women “like” more pages prior to getting married – wedding inspiration and wedding planning pages - it determined that engaged men send more direct, private messages on the site than single men.

“Engaged men send 1.4 times more messages, make 1.2 times more posts, and 1.2 times more check-ins,” stated the site’s report.
