Recently social media have been overpowered by football excitement. The biting of Suarez, the staggering victory of the German team over Brazil and finally brave fight for the Cup were only a few pretexts for brands to use the real-time marketing. Sponsors of the FIFA World Cup paid huge money and tired to use the sponsorship also for social media marketing. However, some of their competitors were referring to the World Cup too, sometimes with big success, as our analysis shows.

Yesterday’s meeting on Facebook revealed the truth about latterly discussed Facebook phone.

Nevertheless, the new homepage for smartphones, designed by Facebook, will be available to all Android users.
