Indian Brand Pages lead global top 100 on Facebook

Socialbakers, one of the biggest social media statistics portals in the world, recently released the August 2011 Engagement Analytics Report showcasing the global top 100 pages on Facebook. The study reveals that the top six slots have been occupied by Indian Brand Pages, outdoing the world’s biggest brands. Of these six brands, five are managed by independent full service digital agency Interface Business Solutions.

The evaluation was based on 30 parameters set by Socialbakers while determining the Page score. Basis, the parameters, Kingfisher (83 per cent), Bingo! (82 per cent), Tata Docomo (78 per cent), MTV India (77 per cent), Tata Photon (76 per cent) and eBay India (75 per cent) feature as the top six, leaving only three spots for the global brands. The scores indicate the strength of the page, comprising engagement, response rate and quality of content management.

Commenting on the achievement, Sabyasachi Mitter, Managing Director, Interface Business Solutions, said, “Digital in general and social media in particular has become a key part of a brand’s marketing strategy. Increasingly, brands are keen to engage with their communities and work towards tangible and measurable performance metrics be it engagement, monetisation or sampling. This data from Socialbakers shows the success of social media strategies employed by brands in India. Further, earlier stats released by Socialbakers mentioned that on an average, Indian’s “Like” more brands on Facebook than people elsewhere. The leaderboard now proves that with the right content and engagement strategy, Indian’s are also likely to be more engaged than people from other regions.”

The company undertakes the complete conceptualisation of the strategy, online reputation management; a web/ wap property along with the social media handles for brands like Tata Docomo. Starting from zero, Tata Docomo has become the largest Facebook community in India with close to 4 million fans and the largest telecom community on Facebook globally.
