So, you ever hear of this little event they host every year called the Super Bowl? Apparently when it aired Sunday, there was a lot of talk that came of it. A good portion of the conversation that took place online, took place on Facebook. It was reported by Facebook that 65 million people world-wide created 265 million posts, comments and likes about the game. The 265 million interactions that took place on Facebook was a record for any Super Bowl.
If you looking to compare numbers, only 88 million people generated 280 million interactions in last summer’s World Cup Final between Germany and Argentina. This is a 4 to 3 ratio between the Super Bowl and the World Cup Final. The vast majority of the Super Bowl audience was American with 55 million from the US.
Naturally, the end of the game was the most active for the fan, with 1.3 million people per minute talking about the Super Bowl.
