The 'Social Media Wars Told in 'Game of Thrones' Style' infographic examines the interactions between major social media sites in a medieval manner.

Hootsuite, a popular Twitter and Facebook platform where you can pre-schedule Tweets and posts, created the infographic using the information available about these sites. The 'House Facebook', 'House Twitter,' 'House Google,' 'House YouTube,' 'House LinkedIn,' 'House Tumblr,' 'House Pinterest' and 'House HootSuite Order of Owls' are active members of the online Game of Thrones battle.

Not only are these social media sites competing for most of the same clientele, they are actively blocking one another's progress on the web. For instance, once Facebook bought Instagram, Twitter retaliated by not allowing Instagram users to find Twitter friends by way of Twitter on Instagram. Facebook then responded by not allowing Twitter's 'Vine' site to find Facebook friends from Vine itself.
