The Birth of a Social Media Prince #royalbaby

Nancy V - Thursday, July 25, 2013

With all the publicity this royal baby has been receiving in the past couple of days, you cannot turn on a television or go on the internet without seeing a mention of His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis.  Social Media has played a big role in the birth of His Royal Highness, so I decided to look at the numbers. 

Ever since Facebook launched hashtags, the hastag #royalbaby has been mentioned even more. Twitter released a report yesterday outlining the mentions which included hashtags such as #royalbaby, #royalbabyboy, and #royalbabywatch.  

When the birth of the baby was announced, there were 25,300 tweets per minute. Since the Duchess was admitted to the hospital, #royalbaby become the popular hashtag being used over 900,000 times. 

On Facebook, the #royalbaby was mentioned over 1 million times. The top five nations mentioning this hashtag were:

1. United Kingdom (we would hope - of course)

2. United States

3. Canada

4. Italy  

5. France

I wonder where other countries fit on this scale but Facebook announced that these are only preliminary results with a full report expect shortly. 

This report will be so detailed that Facebook outlines women between the ages of 25 and 34 came in first for #royalbaby mentions, followed by women 18 to 24 and 35 to 44. Men showed up fourth on the list of #royalbaby mentions. 

Now if you cannot get to England in time, you can congratulate the Duke and Duchess by signing their Google+ card here: 

Social Media has become so important in today's current events. Most publications provide up-to-date stories on their Twitter before their website. So now I wonder - Do you follow news on social media or do you visit the publication's website exclusively? I guess for me, it is a mix of both.
