In the past month EPL football clubs have amassed 3.3 million new Facebook Likes, 342,109 new Twitter followers and nearly 10,000 tweets. Our data analysis shows that this works out as a 12% growth for Twitter followers and 9% for Facebook fans and it doesn’t like it will decline. With this in mind, who performed best in the last month?
Notable insights to take notice off include:
- - Chelsea massively ramped up their Twitter efforts that saw them have their 2nd most active month on Twitter since the start of the season – with 898 tweets.
- - Arsenal earned a huge 100,000 new followers this month and looks on course to dominate the Twitter standings for the rest of the season with their nearest rivals Liverpool nearly 600,000 followers behind!
- - Only 7 out of 20 Premier League teams have updated their Facebook Page to Timeline. Is this because they have to redesign their apps/layout or simply because it will be unpopular with fans?
- - Only 432 people are talking about Wigan on Facebook – which is significantly lower than the league average of 80,000.
