Facebook’s Like-purge. What’s the impact on brands?

Posted by Doug Schumacher on April 13th, 2015 at 12:49 pm

The past few weeks we’ve seen the results of what Facebook announced earlier in the month: That they’re purging memorialized and voluntarily deactivated accounts.
The team at Zuum has analyzed over 10,000 pages ranging in size from 10 fans to 100 million, to gauge the average impact of this on fan counts. You can use this data to compare to your own page during the same time period to benchmark your page with others of a similar size.

Methodology
The Facebook announcement was made on March 5th, and our data indicates that brands began experiencing fan drops the week of March 11-17. Facebook has been rolling this out to brands on different days after the 11th. By comparing the fan growth rate the week of March 11 to the prior week (March 4-10), we can make a general estimate for the average impact.
Chart 1 below shows the comparison between those two weeks.

With millions cooking this day, everyone needs a good recipe.

Great way to remind the fans of a massive victory several years prior.

Manchester United
Man U sending some love across the pond.

Starburst
Showing a little quirkiness.

AXE
Showing a sense of perspective and rationality.

Ashton Kutcher
Ashton posts on July 3rd, and then heads off for what must have been a very tame, boring 4th.

Covering all the bases.

Some original content for the holiday. Nice.

Barack Obama
Of course the President is going to post.
