The 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, are now a memory, but the International Olympic Committee took one final look at highlights and statistics on Facebook and other social networks at the Games.
Social media gets the blame for a lot of things — cyber-bullying, the rise of the selfie, hashtag-shaped potato snacks (really, Birds Eye? Really?), and the popularity of Justin Bieber. When something happens that embarrasses or concerns today’s society, Facebook is often the scapegoat.
If Facebook can adopt Twitter features, such as Trending and hashtags, it’s only fair for Twitter to be able to test a redesign of its profile that makes it look a lot like Facebook, or even like Google Plus, right?
Facebook Weekly Highlights features photos and videos posted to the social network by celebrities and athletes. This week’s edition featured the photo to the left of Backstreet Boys wishing Facebook a happy 10th anniversary; as well as the photo atop the post, posted by former President George W. Bush, of Jay Leno holding up the portrait Bush painted in honor of Leno’s last episode as host of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
The 2014 Winter Olympic Games have begun in Sochi, Russia, and while Facebook may not appear on any of the medal podiums, it is eyeing the gold medal for fans’ social networking experience.
There were 650,757 posts on Facebook Sunday related to Super Bowl ads, compared with 583,152 tweets, and Budweiser was the most discussed advertiser, while the most engaging advertiser was GoDaddy, according to statistics from social marketing platform Engagor.
