Below, additional findings from Covario's Social Media Study of Top 100 Advertisers.
The Facebook Presence ranking is based on a weighted model composed of each brand's reach (number/ growth of followers), engagement (monthly posts, likes, comments and applications), technical aspects Facebook page (brand name usage, linkage to a brand's website, etc.), and reputation (particularly negative, user-generated Facebook sites about a brand):
The Facebook Presence Score (FPS) is then applied, on a scale of 0 to 100 with "0" being "Poor" and "100" being "Excellent." The scores are normalized based on the underlying data used.
