MarketingProfs B2B Forum is going virtual... with a twist. Don’t miss it.

The 10 stores with the most Likes on Facebook are Big Box retailers, with male as well as female users ranking Wal-Mart, Target, and Amazon in the top 4, according to a recent report by ePrize.

Three of the top 6 retailers that men Like most are electronics stores (Best Buy, Fry's Electronics, and h.h. gregg), whereas mass retailers and department stores dominate women's 10 most Liked.

The under-18 age group is the one demographic that doesn't have as much of an affinity for Big Box retailers: Their list of top 10 Liked stores includes Converse, Aeropostale, and Build a Bear.

Below, additional key findings from the report, which was based on data collected from 52,697 unique Facebook fans from the US who have Liked CPG companies.


  • Men on Facebook have a taste for classic rock and hard rock, with The Beatles (#2), AC/DC (#5), Metallica (#7), and Pink Floyd (#9), landing on their list of musicians with the most Likes.
  • Women tend to Like a wide variety of current pop artists, including Maroon 5, Adele, Nickelback, and Carrie Underwood.
  • Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry are in the top 10 for both genders. 
  • There is also some common ground for kids and their parents. Eminem, Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga make the top 10 both for those under 18 and those 35-44.


TV Shows 

  • Ellen is the TV show with the most Facebook Likes from women, followed by House and SpongeBob SquarePants.
  • Cartoons make up five of the top 10 shows most Liked by men (Family Guy, The Simpsons, South Park, SpongeBob SquarePants, and Futurama).
