0 16

According to statistics released by Facebook, Germany’s seven goals in its World Cup victory over Brazil Tuesday wasn’t the only record-breaking aspect of the day.

Around 66 million people created more than 200 million Facebook interactions during Tuesday’s World Cup match between Brazil and Germany — totals that crushed the social media giant’s previous 2014 records, the World Cup opening match featuring Brazil and Croatia and the 2014 Super Bowl.

Facebook users in Brazil, the tournament’s host country, were responsible for about one quarter of the total traffic Tuesday, with 16 million people creating more than 52 million interactions, which include posts, comments and likes.
