Who is talking about the election on Facebook?
From July 10 to Oct. 19, 22 million people in the U.S. posted about the elections or liked candidates' pages on Facebook. That's 11 percent of the social networking site's active users. People were most active in Maine and least active in New York. These percentages are based on the number of unique users who engaged in the conversation about the midterm elections divided by the total number of active people on Facebook in each state or demographic group.
