facebookThe Michael Jackson Memorial Funeral service on July 7th 2009 was the biggest event ever on Facebook. It was a bigger  FACE BOOK event than the Barack  Obama Inauguration.

Television reports have the  event as the second largest FUNERAL EVENT on TV coming in  behind the Princess Di Funeral.

There is no way to measure totally the  viewing audience because live streams were everywhere on the web. The event was shown in movie theaters across the country as well.

Snippet from From

“Facebook just sent us the staggering stats coming out of their live Michael Jackson memorial stream, created in partnership with CNN. The numbers far exceed those from Obama’s inauguration, making this the biggest live Facebook event in history.

As of yesterday 800,000 people gave away the Michael Jackson(MJ) virtual glove gift. The Michael Jackson Funeral was the largest Facebook interactive event  ever.

Commentators and many folks thought the MJ  Funeral coverage was over the top and not appropriate. it was a bit much.
