Social media news aggregator NewsWhip announced the winners of its first annual Whippies awards for publishers with the strongest engagement on Facebook and Twitter, and The Huffington Post took home the honors for Facebook.
Quiz site PlayBuzz continued its surge in Facebook shares, vaulting to the top of NewsWhip’s ranking of publishers for November, and marking the first time since NewsWhip began compiling its rankings in August 2013 that neither The Huffington Post nor BuzzFeed occupied first place.
The Huffington Post continued to dominate among publishers on Facebook in August, dominating in terms of both total interactions (likes, comments and shares) and shares, according to the latest data from social media news aggregator NewsWhip.
The Huffington Post was the top publisher on Facebook in June, in terms of both shares and overall interactions (likes, shares, and comments), according to the latest data from social media news aggregator NewsWhip.
Interaction with content from media companies on Facebook rose 23 percent between January and April, according to a study of more than 1.74 billion engagements with some 250,000 stories that were shared on the social network, conducted by social media news aggregator NewsWhip.
April was not kind to BuzzFeed, as the content aggregator saw its total number of Facebook interactions (likes, comments, and shares) slip to just over 39 million from nearly 47.5 million in March, and it accounted for just five of April’s 20 biggest Facebook stories after logging 12 in the previous month, but BuzzFeed still topped publishers in terms of shares for April, according to social media news aggregator NewsWhip.
