Modern Warfare 3 8th Most Popular Topic on Facebook
Facebook, the social media juggernaut with over 800 million members, released some information about the most popular topics of 2011 (not counting December) on Facebook.
Among the remarkable events such as the death of Osama Bin Laden and Steve Jobs or the Green Bay Packers winning the Super Bowl, is Modern Warfare 3. According to Data Scientists Jonathan Chang and Eytan Bakshy, Modern Warfare 3 was the eighth most popular topic on Facebook in 2011. In the United States it’s even as high as the fifth most popular topic of 2011.
After selling more than 6.5 million units within 24 hours in the US and UK alone and raking in more than $775 million within 5 days after the official release, you knew there would be some chatter about the Modern Warfare 3 on Facebook. But I don’t think anyone would have thought that Modern Warfare 3 would make it in the top 10 popular topics on Facebook. Important to note here, Modern Warfare 3 is the only game that made it into the top 10.
I’m proud to say that the nearly 19,000 fans on our Facebook page helped to get Modern Warfare 3 on that spot!
