Musicians Lead The Way On Facebook + More Findings [STUDY]

Facebook-musicIn a recent study conducted by Recommend.ly, Facebook Pages for
musicians and bands have led the way in collecting the most fans compared to any
other personal brand Page
(celebrities, public figures, etc) throughout the
past 3-4 years. This was seen after Recommedn.ly took a sample of 5.76 million Facebook
Pages and saw that the average fans per category resided most heavily in the category
of musicians. There were also a slew of findings regarding how musicians and others perform on Facebook including their page activity, their participation with fans, the type of content they share, and more.

Below is merely a glance at some of those numbers, but we encourage you to read the
full report here.

  1. The reason the biggest figure represents musicians is mostly due to the fact that F*c*book ate up Myspace’s members at large, and that has been a music oriented service.
    And like my forespeaker Feast, I also hope F*c*book will be a fad rather sooner than later.
