The Social Media Buzz Behind the Royal Wedding [INFOGRAPHIC]


With hours to go until the Royal Wedding, online buzz surrounding the big event has surpassed the chatter that surrounded the Egypt uprising and the Japan earthquake.

New stats gathered and analyzed by Webtrends reveal that the world simply can’t stop talking about the Royal Wedding (not that you needed us to tell you). According to the web analytics company, people have sent 911,000 tweets in the last 30 days, or just a little more than 30,000 tweets per day, which accounts for 71% of the buzz Webtrends tracked. For comparison, there were approximately 217,000 Facebook status updates and 145,000 blog posts about William and Kate’s big day.

And while you may think most of the social buzz surrounding the royal nuptials is coming from the U.K., think again. Webtrends says that a whopping 65% of tweets, blog posts and Facebook updates are coming from the U.S., while 20% are coming from the UK. Canada is in third place with a mere 2.6% of social media buzz. This matches stats from Nielsen, which also says that the U.S. is the #1 source of Royal Wedding chatter.

Guard Dismissed After Calling Kate Middleton “Stuck Up Cow” on Facebook


A Buckingham Palace guard has been dismissed from his royal wedding day duties after calling bride-to-be Catherine (Kate) Middleton a “stuck up cow” and “posh bitch” on Facebook.

Eighteen-year-old Scots Guardman Cameron Reilly (pictured), who lists “causing trouble” and “super-strength lager” among his interests on his since-removed Facebook profile, wrote of Catherine and Will: “hur and william drove past me on friday n all a got was a shitty wave while she looked the opposite way from me, stupid stuck up cow am a not good enough for them! posh bitch am totally with u on this 1 who reely gives a f*** about hur.”

Reilly, who joined the army last year, was scheduled to be among the several hundred Scots Guards lining the route of the wedding procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace on Friday.

Reilly is also being investigated for racist and anti-Semitic comments left on the site, the UK Press Association reports. Among the items: “a was gonae put a few rifles in ma bergan anaw but then a remembered a couldnt fit any in cause a had 2 many paki’s scalps in it already.”

The Ministry of Defence said in a statement: “In view of the nature of the allegation, it would not be appropriate for the individual to be on parade for The Royal Wedding.”
