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 Imagine Dragons after performing at the Grammy Awards; as well as the photo atop the post of a sweater selfie by the U.S. Ski Team.
State of the Union
More than 321 posts from members of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives were shared on Facebook during the president’s annual State of the Union address.
Forget the political pundits and look no further than Facebook, which captured instant reaction to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech tonight.
Joe Wilson, a Congressman from South Carolina, has decided to deliver a live response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address on Wednesday via Facebook. The Republican has opted for Facebook over Youtube – which was the video messaging platform of choice for campaign marketing during the 2008 Presidential elections.
CNN’s partnership with Facebook worked really well for President Obama’s inauguration, so the two are back at it for the coverage of President Obama’s State of the Union coverage and President Obama’s Address to Congress. In the same way live coverage was supplemented with Facebook users’ streaming status updates during the inauguration, so too will Facebook users have the combined and social experience for the State of the Union.
