A colossal winter storm, also known as the “bomb cyclone,” hit the East Coast hard with bone-chilling temperatures, heavy snow and travel chaos, causing school cancellations and many to work from home.
What was it like outside of our homes? You probably didn’t have to wonder much if you followed the coverage by local news outlets.
Using CrowdTangle, we compiled some high-performing posts from the storm posted on Facebook. Most were video posts and Facebook Live broadcasts. These videos mainly generated two types of reactions: Wow, driven by unusual events like snow in Florida, and Love, generated by heart-warming posts and stunning images.
