They're each rolling out Facebook is taking a fairly similar approach. It's put together a hub called Trending World Cup, which also includes scores and news from the matches and a feed of posts from teams and players. Your own friends' posts will show up in the hub too, which will be accessible straight from Facebook's Trending area on the News Feed. Once the games start, people will be able to post what they're watching too by using the smiley icon that's used for sharing what you're doing. In addition to the hub, Facebook has also put together an interactive map showing where fans of s
Facebook, Twitter and Google each have teams of scientists that routinely pour over the deluge of data created by users. But for the World Cup, Google went one step further and opened an experimental "newsroom" in San Francisco to monitor World Cup activity. As NPR reported, the newsroom was assigned to turn those search trends into content that could in turn be shared on Facebook, Twitter and Google +. The results were posted on a Google Trends World Cup Page. But here's the twist: The newsroom chose to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, NPR reported. For examp

Facebook. This all starts at the Trending World Cup page, which works in a similar manner to Twitter's hub -- albeit with a bit less detail. You can view upcoming matches, but there's no obvious shortcut to find your official team page -- you just have to search for it (e.g., "U.S. Soccer") and look for the blue tick to highlight the official site. Compared to the other two, there's a distinct lack of structure and effort from Google at the #WorldCup2014 page. In fact, there isn't even one official hashtag -- people are just using whatever tag comes to mind, resulting in something of a mess. Then again, Google has other assets at its disposal that World Cup fans might find useful. Firstly, there's a straightforward search, which will show up-to-the-minute scores and stats when you search for relevant terms like "world cup" or "world cup uruguay."
