The Republican Candidates for President of the United States should not ignore The Donald. His announcement to run for President yesterday blew the roof off on Facebook chatter.

Yesterday eccentric Billionaire and host of The Apprentice Donald Trump announced to run for President Of the United States. The Daily Show host Jon Stewart already thanked Donald Trump for making his last 6 weeks his best 6 weeks. His speech was a good doses of controversial and worrying statements that may have been the reason for the social media response his announcement triggered.

According to Facebook's data, Donald Trump's announcement on Tuesday got 3.4 million people to generate 6.14 million interactions (likes, posts, comments and shares). The next best GOP candidate, Ted Cruz, only got 2.1 million people talking on social media after his announcements. All other candidates including Jeb Bush not even cracked the 1 million mark.

The social media fireworks that Trump generated is not necessarily saying that he will come out on top. A lot of interaction is about how political incorrect his views are. As there is no bad PR, it means that Trump is a force to reckon with in the GOP race to become the Republican candidate for the President of the United States election in 2016.

The Wall Street Journal has the neat diagrams with the Facebook data.
