The Winner of the 2010 FIFA World Cup is Social Media

This year’s soccer World Cup has become the first major tournament where Social Media has changed the way fans experience a global sporting event. Traffic on Twitter and Facebook has literally exploded since the tournament began and has continued to grow as supporters use these platforms to voice their support (and their disappointment) in real time.

Has Facebook Got Google and Bing Worried?
