Here's Why You've Just Been Unfriended On Facebook (Revealed Via Twitter) [STUDY]

Being unfriended on Facebook is like being phased out of a friendship in real life – you rarely know it’s happened until a significant period of time has passed (Facebook, like your real life “friends”, doesn’t inform you when you’ve been let go), and your reaction when finding out is typically a face-saving: “Good riddance.”

Still, sometimes the friendship was meaningful and being rejected on Facebook stings. So, here’s the big question: why?

Facebook More Influential Than Twitter For Social TV, Says Data [STUDY]

Twitter’s influence on television is well-documented – it’s now very unusual for any prime-time television program not to actively encourage at least one hashtag (shows like The X Factor have several) for fans to use whilst watching the show – and the bigger TV events can easily generate tens of thousands of tweets per second.

Moreover, and especially during live events, broadcasters will often “check the reaction on Twitter” for an immediate response.

Conversely, the major networks rarely push or advocate the use of Facebook during their programming, nor do they load up the world’s most popular social network to see what’s happening during live shows. All of which, according to the latest data, might be a mistake.
