(CNN) – Hurricane Sandy's Facebook chatter may be as big as the storm's surge as it's swamping just about every topic on the social network's 'Talk Meter.'
The buzz for the storm is easily blowing past the conversation about the presidential candidates and the San Francisco Giants' World Series victory Monday night.
(CNN) - Facebook users were buzzing about the presidential debate Tuesday night more than anything else, including the Major League Baseball playoffs.
According to Facebook's 'Talk Meter' analysis, which measures the increase in buzz surrounding an event on a scale from 1-10, the second presidential debate scored a 7.63.
(CNN) - The vice presidential debate "out-buzzed" Hollywood's biggest nights on Facebook, but wasn't nearly as popular as the presidential debate last week.
According to Facebook's "Talk Meter" analysis, Thursday's debate gained more momentum on Facebook than the 2012 Academy Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards, but when comparing it to three political events – the first presidential debate and both parties' political conventions – Thursday night's debate paled in comparison.
(CNN) - All politics is social – and the world of Facebook is buzzing about the presidential debates. "Romney," "Obama," and "debate" were the top three debate-related terms mentioned on Facebook, but the fourth most popular term, "Big Bird," is undoubtedly the most unexpected trending word or name that arose from the debates.
During Wednesday night's event, the words "Big Bird" were posted to Facebook more times than "taxes," "Jim Lehrer," "Obamacare," "insurance," "Medicare" or "education."
(CNN) - The secretly recorded and recently released clips of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney are gaining more momentum on Facebook than Romney’s speech at the Republican National Convention.
According to Facebook data provided to CNN, Mitt Romney’s remarks that some 47% of voters would not support him because of their government dependence ranked a 5.1 on the Facebook “Talk Meter” scale on Monday, which assigns a number to a person or event's magnitude on a 1-10 scale.
Washington (CNN) – Of all the major issues our country is facing, stories relating to health care legislation are being shared online in key battleground states more than any other issue, according to data from social sharing company ShareThis.
According to information provided to CNN, 16.1% of total shares in 12 battleground states are stories about health care. Over 12% of shares are on stories relating to abortion, followed by education, the economy, role of government, gun control, environment, same-sex marriage, terrorism and foreign policy. Immigration is the least shared-issue with only 1.7% of all shares. Users from New Mexico share health care stories the most – at 45% – followed by New Hampshire at 20%.
Washington (CNN) - Politics beat out pop culture Thursday night on Facebook. President Barack Obama was mentioned more times overall than MTV's Video Music Awards show, which aired the same evening as the final night of the Democratic National Convention.
It wasn't just Obama who was discussed more than the VMA's, former President Bill Clinton, first lady Michelle Obama, and Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney were all discussed more than stars of Thursday night's music awards like One Direction and Lil Wayne. Vice President Joe Biden didn't get as many mentions as those pop stars, but he did surpass Taylor Swift and rapper Frank Ocean in overall mentions.
(CNN) – President Clinton took the ball and ran with it last night, and Facebook has the numbers to prove it.
Even though the Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants in last night's NFL season opener, it was the former president who garnered the most attention on Facebook. According to data provided to CNN from Facebook, Bill Clinton got more mentions on the site than the terms "Cowboys," "Giants," "football," and "Romo," the Cowboy's starting quarterback.
