Hurricane Sandy is registering a 7.12 on Facebook's 'Talk Meter' scale, which ranks overall chatter around an event of topic on a scale from 1-10. The World Series Monday night reeled in a 6.71 on the scale, while President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney are only registering a 3.86 and a 3.5 respectively.
