Reporter notes[edit]

The social media research done for this article has been/will be in part mailed to the scoop list. When note there, the follow up information can be found in these notes. This topic pertains to my social media research related to my PhD. --LauraHale (talk)

The story broke late on June 11, 2012 based on USA time time stamps for articles. --LauraHale (talk) 22:50, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Media organisation coverage by others[edit]

Several people copied the Reuters story including FOX News. It was mentioned elsewhere including:

I have decided not to list all of these organisations and formatted but you can get the gist of it.--LauraHale (talk) 23:00, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Search stuff[edit]

See packetpage titled "Google Trends". Some of this is graph interpretation. Point F appears to be around 13% while the Obama visit appears to be at 75%. My math says this is 5.7 times as much interest. 2009 most interesting looks about 35%. The "Google Trends: Auriemma vs. Hardwick" page verifies the USA based searching. Saying largely because other searches occurred but not enough to pop on Google's search thing. --LauraHale (talk) 23:18, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Traffic peaks[edit]

The coach does not have an official website. These two sites were chosen instead. The data was from Alexa and is found in the packet. --23:57, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Twitter stuff[edit]

Most of this comes from the packet. A second e-mail was sent to scoop that referenced the tweets made to Auriemma. --LauraHale (talk) 23:45, 15 June 2012 (UTC)


See packet sent to scoop. --LauraHale (talk) 23:00, 15 June 2012 (UTC)


Can be confirmed at , here and in packet. --LauraHale (talk) 23:18, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia information[edit]

Don't mean to be a wet blanket, recognizing this is under development, but, fwiw: The headline and lede atm are leaving me uncertain what is the news focus. Rereading the lede a few times I've a theory, but it should leap out from the first sentence, rather than accumulating mildly over the course of the entire lengthy first paragraph. --Pi zero (talk) 23:12, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Erk. Tried to rewrite lead. I know what I'm trying to say. It is basically that there was this big story about the USA women's national team head coach being accused of sexual harassment. It was covered by a lot of media organisations, but the story was not picked up by fans. The story was driven by the media but it went no where. This contrasts to say other sport stories where the story first gets picked up in social media before going to the news. --LauraHale (talk) 23:28, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
That does come through more clearly now. --Pi zero (talk) 23:33, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
