What's the point of venting out a break up on social media?

Over the past week, my social media walls are being inundated by pics with statements like "you pushed me away" and "never let a man put you through heartbreak" etc etc., almost exclusively by women.
So.. what's the point of advertising a break up on social media? Is it to gain sympathy from friends? Support from white knights? Or an indirect way of telling your friends "hey I'm single again, help me find someone"?
