Notable Performances

  • It is worth noting that even though our notable performances focus on a percentage of growth, when looking at volume, the Celebrities category is by far the most successful category. If you take a look at the growth data, the Celebrities category gained 2 million fans, over 4 times the growth of the next closest category. The lesson: celebrity fan pages are a powerful component of their brands.
Footwear/ Athletic Apparel
  • Last week we saw a Twitter increase for Marvel as a result of the buildup to The Avengers. Now that the movie just had the largest weekend ever, we are seeing that increase continue.
  • Pepsi's Twitter account has shown interesting activity since we started performance tracking. For several weeks Pepsi actually had a decrease in fans. Last week they had a 1.3% increase. They now show a 3.3% increase, which shows a renewed commitment to the channel, specifically around the #LiveForNow initiative.
