For Smartphone Users, Facebook Beats Twitter For World Cup Social Chatter [STUDY]

28 percent of smartphone users plan to use Twitter to discuss the 2014 World Cup simultaneously whilst watching live games, reveals new data from Peel.

That’s a pretty impressive number. However, it’s not much more than half of Facebook’s total, with 53 percent of respondents using that platform for social chatter during the event.

53 percent also said that that they would be sending SMS text messages to friends about live matches. Twitter did, however, beat phone calls (24.6 percent) and Skype (18.8 percent).
