Facebook and CNN partnered in the web coverage of the Inauguration and enabled Facebook users to watch a live broadcast of the speech while viewing notes and updates from their Facebook friends on the same screen. Updates ranged from words of encouragement for the President to complaints about waiting in line in the ridiculous cold DC weather.

One million status updates were posted throughout the CNN.com Live Facebook feed during the Inauguration. CNN said there were an average of over 4,000 status updates every minute during the broadcast.
