Facebook Users Rapidly Respond To Obama's Speech

During and immediately after President Barack Obama's speech about jobs, Facebook users responded to his proposals in posts going up several times per second.

Facebook users were posting their opinions on the economy about several times per second during President Barack Obama’s speech about jobs.

The pace of these posts seems about equal to what occurred during last night’s Republican debate.

This suggests that the topic of the President’s speech has appealed to sentiments on both sides of the proverbial aisle, not just Democrats.

Additionally, a fair amount of posts included overtly Republican sentiments and criticisms of various aspects of the President’s speech. Some of these show a good sense of humor.

Meanwhile, readers, what reactions are your friends posting on Facebook right now?
