The Walking Dead is one of the most-watched series on television and often uses social media to deliver more content to fans. With over 15 million page Likes, the series thrives on viewers’ desire to share their reactions while watching a new episode. The most engaging posts the page posted this week were simple text posts asking fans if they were excited for the new episode and then a similar post after the show aired asking fans for their reaction. Though these posts are short and simple, the content around it is very strong within its community which leads to strong engagement.


At No. 4 on the list this week, The Today Show posts much more frequently than The Walking Dead page. The page operates mostly as a news hub, sharing stories and articles from their own website. Though these posts may not receive the mass of engagements seen by posts like The Walking Dead, the page is consistent and provides up-to-the-minute information.
