Here's a fun infographic detailing last night's social activity around The X Factor's season 2 finale.

  • Baqinardo

    #1 show on Twitter.
    Twitter will renew it for 10 more seasons. Ha!

  • CenterGravity

    How much does this activity add to the FOX coffers?

  • Anonymouse

    Y U no mention The Voice and Gossip Girl finales FOX?

    Y U lie so much FOX.

    I have to give credit to the folks behind their Twitter account though. The tweens do anything for a follow and they made sure they had plenty of hash tags to retweet.

    Why is this news?

  • Kangarookeeper

    Of course most of the buzz was negative but Fox will take it.

  • ht

    Shame it didn’t generate that many additional viewers – I’ve never known a network try so hard to make a show a hit, that clearly isn’t.

  • r0ckmypants

    This is a fun chart! It means nothing, but it’s kinda cool to see.

    Interesting that the announcement of the third place contestant inspired more commentary than the performance by One Direction.

  • @panocha

    The X Factor have the best fan base
    NOT the Voice
    Not IDOL

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Hahaha the voice isnt on the list.. That just proves that the person who won the voice is not very or will be famous.. XFactor is the best and better than the voice, which is pretty stupid if you ask me..

  • I luv nickelodeon

    For all you who said the x factor didn’t reach 10 million are wrong.
    XFactor did hit over 10 million on the last hour (9pm)

    FOX: “The X Factor” season finale (10.3 million, 6.0/9)

  • Phil

    That stat sheet is AMAZING! Just like Britney’s usage of AMAZING on the show!

  • EatMorePez

    Now explain how you generate revenue from this FOX.

  • Tessa

    When you can’t brag about the ratings…

  • ZmaX

    Now it’s up to the Pretty Little Liars Fans to beat these ratings and hit the 2 Million mark for the Season 3 Finale. Quite a lot of work, but they can do it ;)

  • brian

    I think twitter will be monitized soon. Ad blast with topic of ad getting a cut, twitter getting a cut…. and 2m tweets might bring in $2k. So means about nothing.

  • JNewt

    I go on many boards for X Factor and The Voice and on YouTube and its not even close with either show. X Factor is way more popular on both. It looked hot on Twitter and Facebook too.

    I think the difference is that X Factor’s audience is younger than The Voice’s but what’s weird is how X Factor’s ratings aren’t past Idol and it seems a lot more popular and more talked about than Idol last season.

    Those numbers are fabricated people. That’s why we all love The Voice because it’s so genuine. Simon Cowell is just shady.

    This came out recently concerning Youtube views.

    “Google slashed the cumulative view counts on YouTube channels belonging to Universal Music Group, Sony/BMG, and RCA Records by more than 2 billion views Tuesday, a drastic winter cleanup that may be aimed at shutting down black hat view count-building techniques employed by a community of rogue view count manipulators on the video-sharing site.”

    Same thing happends on Twitter and Facebook.

  • Mayans

    @ I luv nickelodeon

    Those were half hour numbers. It’s pretty common that at the very end there are more tuning in because a large number of people only want to know the winner. 10.3m still doesn’t hold a candle to the almost 15 mil viewers of The Voice though.

  • Mayans

    @ JNewt, just do a quick Google search for both and see how many negative reviews X-Factor receives and how many raving reviews The Voice gets. That’s how you determine popularity. When the majority of of the people that comments on X-Factor bashes the show is it still popular.. or unpopular? :d
