The Snooki Baby Chronicles
August 28, 2012 | Comments Off
The reality television world welcomed a new baby to the world this week when Snooki, of Jersey Shore fame, gave birth to a boy.
It all began 9 months ago, but in terms of the social media space, you can see in the chart that it actually began the week of February 27 when the volume of conversations spiked dramatically. And, we can also see the exact date when people learned of the subsequent birth on August 26. It’s interesting to see that the volume of conversations around the announcement of the pregnancy far outnumbered the volume of conversations around the announcement of the birth. Even though it’s new news, it seems the birth is simply old news!
And what did Snooki name her fair child? Once again, social media comes to the rescue by sharing the name Lorenzo Dominic. Many people had a bit of fun calling the child Baby Guido, but that moniker just couldn’t keep up with mentions of the actual name.
So what do social media users think of the whole affair? Our analysis of hundreds of thousands of social media conversations gave Snooki two thumbs up. That is, two thumbs out of ten fingers.
About 6% of conversations were negative:
- I give that baby 5 days before Children’s Aid takes it away
- She thinks babies are disgusting and won’t change the diapers
About 73% of conversations were neutral:
- I have no idea why people care
- We really don’t need another snooki but whatever
And, about 22% of conversations were positive:
- God bless your wunderful bundle of joy!
- Yayyy! Snooki had her baby!
Wherever you stand, a new baby is a delightful event. Congratulations Snooki and Lorenzo!
