This week was a historic week in the social media world. Once again, social media broke news before main news sources were able to keep pace during Election Day. We had the most popular tweet of all time occur this week (Sorry Justin Bieber). We learned about a rising star named Nate Silver who “won one for the data scientist” while blogging for the New York Times. We had a diehard World of Warcraft female gamer win a senate seat. We found out that Hurricane Sandy was the most photographed event of all time on Instagram (over 800,000 photos with the hashtag #sandy).  We had the most engaging tweet of all time by Progressive Insurance. Foursquare made a subtle change that now puts them as a direct competitor of Yelp. Let’s hope the little guy (Foursquare) wins this battle. Star Wars Fans PAY ATTENTION – Angry Birds Stars Wars is now out for Andoid and IOS. Affectionately referred to as ABSW, I suggest you treat yourself to the game immediately. It is quite addicting. In more core gamer news, Call of Duty: Black Ops II now has league play live streaming through Youtube. That is a major advance in the video gaming world. This week for our viral video, we have found a video that is quickly becoming one of my favorite videos of the year. Take a look at this 9-year old girl beat all the boys at their own game – football! She has speed for sure.
