Coca-Cola seemed to grow as the result of promoting one of its recent posts. The post, seen to the right, gained significantly more shares, Likes and comments than others on the page, though it is similar in style and execution to what Coke has been doing for weeks. The company might have run a page-post ad or page-post Like Sponsored Stories to get that boost.
The Entertaining Elf, a website that bills itself as “your daily dose of entertainment and fun,” came in at No. 3. The site has been making several posts a day and includes a Like button for its Facebook page next to all of its blog posts.
Ted (The Movie) picked up close to 450,000 Likes this week, likely due in large part to an ad campaign promoting the film’s release today. The page also features a tab app that lets people add the film’s stuffed bear character, Ted, to photos of themselves partying. Users can then share the photo or set it to be their Timeline cover photo.
Amazon.com, Target, Samsung Mobile and Samsung Mobile USA have had ongoing Sponsored Story campaigns that make them appear regularly on our list of top growing pages. Other pages in the top 20 seem to have grown through organic momentum, though Palestinian singer Lian Bazlamit seems to have gained new Likes from a page consolidation.
