People On Social Media Used A Ton Of Swears In 2016

Are you offended by strong language? If so, you may want to avoid the internet. Hotwire PR looked at word usage on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, blogs, comments, and forums using a tool called Netbase. They discovered that nearly one-billion “F” words were shared online in 2016. Still, one day saw more usage of the “F” word than others– November 9th, the day Donald Trump won the election. On that day, the “F” word was used over seven-million times online, over three times the daily average for the rest of the year. The second sweariest day was February 4th, it’s not clear if there’s a reason. The data also showed women swore more than men, with 58 percent of the colorful language coming from posts by women.
