This weeks Top Posts were a bit different than what we expected them to be. Our predication was that the list would be drowned in Super Bowl posts, but it ended up completely different.
One reason for that is the fact that our system stops calculating the Top Post at 12am CET, and since the match finished at approximately 4am (CET) the news about the outcome was known/spread too late for it to still be considered. Nevertheless, we browsed some sports pages and found a post that would most likely have made it anyway:
Yet it’s still surprising that only a single post announcing one of the biggest sporting events of the western world made it. And to be honest, it has less to do with the actual match than a competition between the two fan bases.
Considering all the hype it’s rather strange, but also says something about the mentality of most fans. What matters is the result not all the talking prior to the match.
Even though the event happened 8 days ago, the Grammy Awards made it as well. Macklemores performance really managed to warm the hearts of a lot of people.
Another post that immediately stands out: Two months after his passing Paul Walkers death still touches the Facebook community.
There were also quite a few viral posts this week that managed to generate way more reactions than the page has fans. You simply have to feel sorry for this little dog.
But the most successful post was about hairspray for dolls…yes, you heard right. Hairspray For Dolls.
Apparently there are a lot of desperate parents who are incredibly happy to finally have found a way to fix their kid’s toys. The post managed to reach around 6 times more people than the page has fans. An impressive achievement.
