Internet Activity Surrounding President Hinckely.

The activity on the Internet surrounding President Hinckely has been huge this and last week.


Newsroom has an article pointing to some of the major coverage.
BlogPulse ranked “Gordon B. Hinckley” as the third most mentioned person in the blogosphere on the day after he died.


As of 11:20 this morning there were 170 groups on Facebook created in memory of President Hinckley. 29,038 individuals belong to the largest group, which is called “In Memory of Gordon B. Hinckley.” Over 90,000 people have subscribed to at least one of the groups.


There’s also a new Web site called HinckleyChallenge. This is an unofficial Web site that challenges people to read the Book of Mormon in 97 days (in commemoration of his age when he died).


Finally, there is a great video up on YouTube where young people share their feelings about the prophet.
