With 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil in the history books, the Facebook Data Science Team reported that 350 million Facebook users generated 3 billion interactions (posts, likes, and comments) during the tournament, which ran from June 12 through Sunday (July 13), making it the most-talked-about sporting event in the social network’s history.
The opening match of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil was the most social thus far, according to the Facebook Data Science Team, while the goal by Javier “Chicharito” Hernández in Mexico’s 3-0 win over Croatia was the most social goal, host nation Brazil topped all countries in tournament-related conversations, and Neymar of Brazil was the player who generated the most buzz.
More than 58 million Facebook users were responsible for more than 140 million interactions on the first day of 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, on which host Brazil defeated Croatia 3-1, and Brazil’s Neymar was the topic of many of those interactions.
