Those who were pure of heart and chirpy of outlook probably glided through yesterday, probably with accompanying cupids or something.

For the rest, there was always our Valentine’s Day Apps article and dinosaurs to entertain and inform (come on, one of two?)

It’s billed as making breakups “suck less”, helping you avoid deactivating your account and “staring at your ex’s stupid face every time you log in.”

However, the app stores these photos in a hidden album on your profile, so you can recover them if you decide an electric toothbrush was actually a thoughtful gift after all and it won’t de-friend or block someone (although you need to be Facebook friends with the ex for it to work), PC Mag said.
