Jackson’s memorial to be bigger global online event than Obama’s inauguration

Michael Jackson’s memorial service at the Staples Center in Los Angeles is expected to be an even bigger global internet video-viewing event than the inauguration of US President Barack Obama.
Facebook users will be able to share thoughts while watching free streaming video of the memorial at CNN Live, ABC, and E! Online websites.
A Michael Jackson page at Facebook has already topped 6.5 million fans, unseating Obama’s ‘fan page’ as the most popular at the California-based social networking service.
“We are preparing for numbers that easily outweigh the inauguration. There is just so much global reach for this star; something about him or his music has touched people around the world,” the ‘Telegraph’ quoted Randi Zuckerberg, Facebook’s marketing director, as saying.
The same technology used to stream CNN coverage of Obama’s inauguration – Facebook Connect – will be put to work letting people watch the Jackson memorial.
