Lopsided Super Bowl pushes would-be viewers to social media, puppies and porn

From online porn to puppies, the dating app Zoosk measured what people did on Sunday during one of the most boring Super Bowls instead of, well, actually watching the game.

A record 3.3 million viewers watched Animal Planet’s anti-Super Bowl TV show, the Puppy Bowl — a 24 percent increase from the year before.

Meanwhile on Zoosk, which bills itself as the No. 1 dating app, Zoosk users sent 12 percent more messages during the game compared to a typical Sunday afternoon.

Fans inside New Jersey’s MetLife stadium, where the Seattle Seahawks pounded the Denver Broncos 43-8, uploaded more than five pictures per second via Instagram.

Facebook saw 50 million users make more than 185 million Super Bowl-related posts, comments and likes.

And in the final three minutes of the game, Twitter saw its second highest rate — 10,000 tweets per second.

After the game, fans in Denver apparently vented their online frustrations in a different way.

Traffic on Porn Hub rose 3.9 percent across the country following the Broncos’ loss. But in Denver, post-Super Bowl traffic on Porn Hub jumped a whopping 10.8 percent.
