Oprah vs. Judgment Day
[ Social Media]

Last Saturday, when nobody actually thought that the world was coming to an end, the realm of social media was nevertheless buzzing about biblical numerologist and proven liar Harold Camping’s ploy for more money prediction.

When 6pm local time came and went in countries all across the world with no sign of the rapture, people took to Twitter and Facebook to convey their utter shock. Well, actually more like joke about their own survival of said fake apocalypse. But either way, people were talking.

Four days later, Media Queen Oprah Winfrey broadcast her final show to millions of fans around the world. She too drew the attention of the social sphere and search, as Yahoo reported a 56% spike in Oprah-related searches over the course of the week leading up to the finale.

Which big story do you think received the most attention from the interwebs? The nopocalypse or the Opocalypse?

If you guessed the end of the world, then you would be absolutely correct.

Social media monitoring company The Meltwater Group has sent us a rather awesome infographic about the social media war of the last few days. They analyzed the volume of conversation around both fake-Judgement day and Oprah’s final show on the specific day of said occurrence (May 21st and 25th, respectively). Based on Twitter, Facebook, video comments and other blog sources, the nopocalypse received over 6 times the amount of chatter as Oprah.

I guess despite being a horrible, vile human being, Harold Camping wins in one regard.

    If at First You Don’t Succeed, Spin It Off.
    Harold Camping sounds like he plagiarized Jehovah’s Witnesses.
    Jehovah Witnesses are a spin-off of the second Adventist which all came from the Millerite movement.American war of 1812 army captain William Miller is ground zero for Jehovah’s Witnesses.
    Yes,the “great disappointment” of Oct 22 1844 has never died out… it lives on in the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
    The central CORE doctrine of the Watchtower,yes the reason the Watchtower came into existence was to declare Jesus second coming in 1914.When the prophecy (derived from William Miller of 1842) failed they said that he came “invisibly”.
    Watchtower reckless predictions of the (1914) (1975)….. second coming of Christ hardens skeptics in their unbelief and provides new fodder for cynics to mock the Christian faith.

    Why anyone should make Oprah Winfrey into some kind of social icon is a mystery to me. She was a decent talk show host who went on to create a financial empire. Big deal. That she was a poor black girl who was raped doesn’t cut it. Everyone has a story.
