Not as big of a success as expected – Facebook Top Posts Week 40

Toddlers dominated Facebook last week. Not the human ones though. Admittedly there were some cute babies who ended up going viral. But none of them met the success of this little elephant.

More than 220k reactions. The page almost managed to reach twice the amount of fans they had prior to publishing the video. What surprised us the most was the fact that the post didn’t have a big impact on the pages growth. Yes, it increased from 0.3 to 0.7%, which is more that twice the amount. Still, a post this viral usually brings in way more fans.

Daily growth still way below 1%, increase at 0.5% just a couple weeks ago

 

The only human who managed to reach a comparable amount of users was this one. A career as a body builder is almost guaranteed. All he needs is some baby oil. But that shouldn’t be too hard to get a hand on.

Engineering also caught the attention of many people. All sorts of things popped up. Some more, some less weird. Let’s start with something a little bit more common: a tuned truck that is able to catch up with a flying plane in a race over a quarter mile.

Questionable that it will get the approval necessary to drive on a normal highway. Still nice to look at.

The next invention is definitely one of the weird ones.

The person who engineered this vehicle knew what he was doing. That thing definitely is ridiculous eye catcher. The fact that the artists still manage to play their instrument like this is pretty impressive. We probably would trouble typing a simple message without our smartphone while riding this thing.

An interesting fact: the post received 11 times more Shares than Likes.

Last but not least: A way to lure hummingbirds. Look at this well thought out bait, disguised as a feeding device.

All you need to do now is grab the little guy. But what’s the point if you can get this close to them without having to lock them up?

Sometimes there are posts that are so peculiar that we ask ourselves why they got liked by so many people. This doesn’t happen very often, but one of the most successful posts of last week left us with a lot of question. Can someone please explain to us what this is supposed to be?
