All 10 of the "trending topics" relate to Jackson whether it's "We Are the World" or Jackson's food choice, KFC.
One user writes "I watched (Jackson's) memorial service. I feel as though it was a great attempt to honor, cherish, and salute one of God's greatest gifts to us." Another person said the memorial "was very touching, I cried many times watching it."
But another user remarked "the memorial is over, let's go back to the more substantial and important Iran peaceful protests.
On Facebook, the reaction was similar. Jackson's fan page has more than 7 million fans, which is the most fans on the social networking Web site.
