As Hurricane Sandy has grown in magnitude, so has its presence on social media. It is clear that over the past week or two, news of the hurricane has strongly overpowered news of the presidential election on the ABC World News with Diane Sawyer Facebook page. News of the presidential election has been low as this news source seems very geared toward keeping its followers updated on everything Sandy-related. Their page is cluttered with stories about the many canceled flights, tips on how to track Sandy's path and links to pictures of her destruction on their website and ways to donate.
It's apparent that much of what has been going on with the election has been put on hold while the country prepares & prays for those who will be affected by the destruciton that Hurricane Sandy is sure to bring.
