Footy season is back and so is the battle for the social media fan!
The AFL has the early lead just topping the magical 1 Million social media fan mark with the NRL closing in on 1 Million fans. Interesting to note the AFL fans have taken to Twitter with twice as many tweeps than the NRL. Getting numbers in social media is the first step, engaging and maintaining interest with those fans is the far more important step. Facebook does not publish the Monthly Engagement numbers, it is these numbers that are far more important to measure success on Facebook. A highly engaged fan base is a MUST, especially given the latest raft of changes on Facebook.
