Remember the “mermaid pillow” that went viral on Facebook Live a while back? It was oddly fascinating, right?
Well, Facebook had an even bigger live event on its hands this week: this time, it was all about a watermelon. Being a fruit lover, this was right up my alley.
On Friday, the Buzzfeed team racked up an impressive 800,000 live viewers with an experiment in which they placed rubber bands around a whole watermelon, one by one, slowly and visibly increasing the pressure to making imminent explosion even more exciting. There’s no denying that people love a good viral moment, and I’m excited to see what Facebook Live will bring us next!
