Reactions to Facebook’s f8 Keynote [infographic]

Below are some charts from Simply Measured that graph the Twitter chatter about Facebook’s f8 keynote today. The announcement of Timeline, the upcoming replacement to the Facebook profile, generated the most reactions, and the new developments with Open Graph and the new classes of Facebook apps produced a second peak. The presentations by the CEOs of Spotify and Netflix also generated a wave of reactions, but responses had begun to tail off by then.

Timeline dominated the conversation, and Mark Zuckerberg’s name took second place. The other new features trailed behind. The word “serendipity” also made the cut, since Zuckerberg used it to describe the user experience enabled by the Open Graph.
