The 10 biggest brands on Facebook- what’s hot and what’s not – TNW Facebook

leave a comment »

Social media is on target to be a $30bn industry (per year) by 2015 and Facebook is growing faster than any site in history. It is the #1 place to have a community for a brand because it touches every single vertical across the enterprise: customer service, sales and public relations.

Let’s take a look at the 10 biggest brands on Facebook, the social content distributors and gamers like Facebook itself, Texas Hold’em Poker (Zynga) and YouTube; pop stars like Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Eminem, Shakira, Linkin Park and Rihanna; and TV shows like Family Guy. Funnily enough, in the time it took to start writing until finishing this piece, Facebook snuck past Texas Hold’em Poker to claim the #1 spot on the chart, and Rihanna danced past Lady Gaga, thanks in part to her new sponsorship with Vita Coca.

And for expert advice, we’ve turned to Lindsay Kaplan, a Social Marketing Expert in New York City; Reema Mitra, an Account Supervisor at EdelmanDigital.com; and Stuart Tracte, a Social Media Strategist at Definition 6.

1. Facebook

Mission: Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected.

Number of Fans: 50,929,267

Daily Growth: 157,851

Weekly Growth: 2,288,293

No surprise here: Facebook is the #1 most Liked brand on its own social network. But only 7% of nearly 700 million Facebook users are fans of the brand online, totaling 50 million fans.
