At Chatterblast, we spend our days monitoring Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and plenty of other social networks. We’re invested, both personally and professionally, in what our communities are saying about everything from Miley’s VMA performance to the latest world news.
We know that not everyone views social media the same way we do—yet. When we’re talking to friends and clients, we often hear that Facebook is just a place to post baby photos or status updates about what you’re eating for lunch. But social media is changing the way the world gets news.
That’s why we were so fascinated by this great social infographic from NBC news. Through an exclusive peek into Facebook’s worldwide data, NBC was able to calculate how many Americans are talking about the current crisis in Syria (lots!) and the specific demographics of those Facebook
users. (It’s intriguing that more men than women are mentioning, no?)
