Social media buzz during the second week of the football transfer window
14th January 2013
Last week we brought you the rumours darting around social media websites as the January transfer window opened. Meltwater Group have once again put together an infographic showing the online buzz during the second week of the football transfer window. Over the period of a week (4th - 10th January), they monitored over 250 million different sources, across Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, blogs, message boards, forums, Wikipedia etc. The key words used were all of the Premier League football club names in association with; January window OR Transfer window. That data was then taken to produce the word cloud (ie, the more times a name is mentioned, the biger the name appeared on the cloud).
