Valentines Day, a mixed emotion holiday, leaving some with flowers and chocolates and others ordering-in chinese. Whether you’re feeling the love or not, you can’t avoid the Valentine’s celebration especially in a world of social media.
In fact, IQ Agency and social media analysis firm Crimson Hexagon examined 2.1 million conversation threads on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other online forums in the first two weeks of February to identify the most romantic states in the U.S.
Their original findings suggest that many of us are not keen on the holiday. 40% of posts contained a negative response to the concept of Valentines Day. Another 23% were indifferent.
So where are those birds-of-a-feather romantic couples? The number one romantic state, California. Trailing close behind is Wyoming, and coming in third, Texas.
For all those cynics out there, the least romantic states are Kentucky, Rhode Island and North Dakota. Interested in the details of each state? Read the State of the Love report at http://mashable.com/2013/02/14/romantic-states-social-media/
Florida may not have come in the top three, but our Director of Account Services, Kassie, may have experienced the #1 romantic gesture. The morning of Valentines day, her husband set forth from West Palm Beach to our offices at On the Ball (Plantation, Florida). This may not sound very romantic, but this poor guy did not have access to a car. Through train, bus, walking and another bus and more walking he managed to carry a boutique of flowers and donuts through a 50 mile journey. He arrived safely to the office, with story equivalent to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
Whether you had a romantic evening, or an evening like any other, On the Ball wishes you a Happy Friday and wonderful weekend!
