Wow. Impressive numbers.
In the aftermath of the news last night that US Forces killed Osama Bin Laden, Facebook and Twitter nearly caught on fire. Here’s an article that sums it up:
I watched in amazement as the Facebook page: Osama being Dead climbed to over 10,000 followers in less than an hour. At the time of this post, roughly 24 hours later, over 31,000 fans have liked the page. A humorous Twitter user created an account GhostOsama and just 93 tweets later, has well over 40,000 followers. The ghost happens to follow just three others. An interesting list in order of follow: Charlie Sheen, Bill Maher and Mike Tyson.
If you had any doubts before how may people are online, how many people are logged in to their favorite social media platform, monitoring news, tweeting, posting and sharing…this article and this news event should provide good proof just how integrated these mediums have become. Even the facts stated in the article amazed me – topping 5100 TPS! I thought the Royal Wedding numbers were impressive! Ha!
