ABOUT TOP TEN FACEBOOK PAGES
Facebook’s strengthening grip and integration with popular culture is very evident as you go through this list of the world’s top ten most popular Facebook pages and realize between them they have over 315 million fans.
1. Texas Hold’em Poker is 1st in Top ten Most Popular Pages (25,886,703 Fans)
The creator and owner of the worlds most popular knows how to spread its separate brands on social media with it holding down the number one spot. You will notice it has multiple call to actions with “PLAY NOW” with a large strong image at center stage. It also has another call to action on the left banner “CLICK HERE TO PLAY POKER”. Zygna knows that its not just about a strong brand but giving very clear instructions what this page is about.
Well, what do you say! Facebook owns this space so it should know what it is doing. You will notice it does two things at the top of the page. One, it has a very topical subject which is very newsworthy with the latest USA elections at the top and it also promoting (in a very soft way) its eco friendly side by asking to join an “Alliance To Save Energy” in top ten most popular facebook pages
Again calls to action are very evident with the goal here to sell more product with the invitation to “Check out the New MJ DVD Box set coming in November”. The use of images and branding here is not as strong as Texas Hold’em Poker but maybe you don’t need to be as it is Michael Jackson in top ten most popular facebook pages
4. Lady Gaga: (21,646,439 Fans)
This singer is all about controversy and cutting through the noise on the WEb and mainstream media and her primary image is consistent with her brand.
5. Family Guy: (20,174,271 Fans)
Family Guys comedy and irreverence has made it one of the worlds most watched TV series and the call to action here is to continue to promote that with asking Fans to vote for the show at the People’s Choice Music Awards. Videos are also able to be watched here which displays what should be on all Facebook pages a lot of Video and multi media in top ten most popular facebook pages
6. YouTube: (18,618,509 Fans)
Promoting fans is a good tactic to use on a Facebook page and YouTube does it here with the first update on the page highlighting the “Far East Movement To YouTube Fans”
7. Eminem: (18,473,414 Fans)
No missing what this page is about with his latest record front and center but call to action is not very evident. Integration to the other social media channels is is good with links to his website, Twitter and Myspace pages at the top left.
8. Vin Diesel: 17,649,964 Fans
Vin’s Facebook consultants and agency are doing something right here obviously with this being the number one Facebook page for an actor. Good to see him being topical with a reference to Halloween as the top update. Call to action to start engaging is not strong with no videos or trailers of his movies on his main page though. Integration to other social media and web channels is not strong with one link to his website and no Twitter or Myspace links.
9. The Twilight Saga: 16,562,819 Fans
This has become a very strong brand that started with a series of book that my teenage daughter loved that became a TV series and finally a movie. Call to action is good with the latest update asking you to engage in an online competition to promote the latest product. (A DVD series).
