Only 4.7% of a brand’s fan base generate 100% of its social referrals

According to a new study from the team at EngageSciences not all Fan’s are created equal. Indeed, only 4.7% of a brand’s fan base generate 100% of its Social referrals (or purchases).

Facebook introduces trending feature to its services 

Having just been launched in the US, UK, Canada, India and Australia – Facebook will now be letting its users know what topics are popular with their friends and Facebook as a whole.

At present there is no feature which includes sponsored or promoted content through the feature. We do however expect that this feature will be added in due course.
