Laura Aznar.- Breaking news, a digital space which offers rigorous real time news, has published a post that gathers the data regarding how readers were informed about Sochi Olympics.

The graph attached, elaborated by the own website, shows how users did not want to know the result of a game before being able to see it, and for that reason, many chose to suspend the automatic refreshment in numerous moments, such as the beginning of the ceremony, the skating finals and the hockey final match -both feminine and masculine-.

The virtual platform, that offered more than 600 actualizations on the event through the mobile phone app, has determined that no history before was as silenced by readers as Sochi Olympics. According to the statistics developed, this is due to the fact that the majority of its followers would rather watch the games in real time.

On the other hand, amongst the most read news, we can find the hockey match between the States and Russia; skater Shaun White’s fall; the moment when Johnny Quinn, former footballer, broke a restroom’s door, the medical emergency of skier Maria Komissarova and Adelina Sotnikova, artistic ice skater, receiving the gold medal.
