Whoa.._Heres_How_Many_People_Will_Share_Super_Bowl_Ads_on_Facebook-lssuper-bowl-ads-on-facebook Could your business be this year's OREO?

The cookie giant made social media history last year after posting this Facebook post when the stadium power went out.

The message quickly went viral, garnering more than 15,000 retweets & nearly 20,000 Facebook Likes.

And a similar social media stunt could happen this year!

Facebook will definitely dominate viewer activity on Super Bowl Sunday.

People will post more often about the game on Facebook than they will text, call friends or tweet about it.

According to this new infographic by Crowdtap, 55% of Super Bowl viewers will post about it on Facebook during the game.

Others will chat about the game via:

  • text messaging (41.5%)
  • the telephone (28.1%)
  • Twitter (25.1%)
  • email (13.2%)
  • instant messaging (12.5%)

And they'll spend much of their time praising & skewering the ads.

But check out how else folks will use social media during the Super Bowl.
