Who's the fairest social brand of all?
The answer may surprise you: National Geographic, the 100-year-old magazine, is the US's leading social brand, per Shareablee's Top 25 Social US Brands in 2015. Once known for glossy magazine shots of rhinos in the untouched wild, NatGeo scored 482.5 million total interactions across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram—462.1 million of which came from the latter, where it leads. Only 2% of its engagement comes from video, but that's probably because it's dominating an image-based sphere with, well, strong images.
