Hashtag #worldcup will be breaking all trending records this summer, with Facebook and Twitter working on various strategies to be the main hub of conversations.

While the London Olympics was one of the most tweeted events back in 2012, this year’s tournament is expected to smash the 150 million tweet record set by the London Olympics.

A similar approach has been adopted by Facebook, putting together a simple interactive map showing where fans of some of this year’s World Cup top players come from, letting you break down where those people originate from by country and by city
