One Response to “How Word of Mubarak’s Resignation Spread on Social Media”

    I’m currently researching social networks – FB, Twitter & traditional (it’s ‘traditional’ now!) e-mail. This looks like a great reference. I read on PC World that Facebook gets 78% of social network traffic but tweet links have 6 times the click-through rate. I wonder what each medium is best for in terms of disseminating information, getting feet on the ground, soliciting donations, etc.
