Within an hour, Facebook had over 1 million mentions about the birth of the royal baby. As expected, men were found to be less interested.
Today is a momentous one. As reported earlier, the long-awaited bundle of joy of Prince William and duchess Kate Middleton is finally born. The royal baby, a boy, was born on Monday at 4:24 p.m. local time.
According to Facebook, within an hour, 1 million mentions related to the royal baby were recorded - a feat that Facebook considers "impressive." Facebook also revealed that women between ages 25 to 34 had the most mentions, while women aging 18 to 24 came in second. Women between the ages 35 to 44 came third.
The numbers make sense, considering the fact that younger generations have more access and time for social networking. The data also confirms that men were less interested about the news. Facebook reveals that men ages 18 to 24 were the last, or, shall we say, do not care about the royal baby at all, at least on Facebook.
