Sunday Social Roundup

  1. Twitter data shows that World Cup viewers stay silent during penalty kicks. People want to watch pivotal moments in real time but keep the phone at bay to tweet reactions.

    +#BRA vs #GER is the most tweeted sports event of all time.

  2. Millennial shoppers use apps in the store to find discounts and product selects instead of reaching out to store employees. Go to any mall in America and you’ll discover that even the employees are googling the answers.

  3. Drones are going to introduce a whole new type of creative, aerial photography. Here’s an award winning Dronestagram shot of an Eagle. What’s the first pic you’d take with a drone? Please don’t say selfie.

  4. Forget about wearables. The future is getting devices embedded into your body. Cyborgs aren’t as crazy as you think. You already carry a hard drive in your pocket 24/7.

  5. The US government wants Iraqi radicals to keep tweeting and Instagramming. Do you think they’d ever be so dumb enough to reveal their location like Geraldo Rivera did during the Iraq War?
