Facebook’s fastest-growing page in the U.S. (in terms of likes) celebrates Instagram’s biggest competitor. The page Best Vines — which started June 1, 2013 — hit 5 million likes on July 10 and is charging hard toward 6 million likes.
Best Vines, which does not appear to be sponsored or managed by Vine, posts to Facebook the most popular videos from Vine, Twitter’s six-second video sharing network. Instagram announced June 20 that users could start recording video from the popular photo-sharing app. On July 12, Best Vines surpassed Instagram’s Facebook page, in terms of likes.
According to PageData, Best Vines is the fastest-growing page in the U.S. and is growing in popularity internationally. Overall, Best Vines is growing by more than 110,000 likes per day (fourth-fastest of any page on Facebook) and 693,000 likes per week (seventh). 51 percent of its fanbase resides in the U.S., with the U.K. and Canada also being popular countries.
Even more impressive than Best Vines’ like totals is the amount of buzz it has generated. As of Monday, Best Vines is the third-most talked about page on Facebook. Videos from Vine posted directly to Best Vines’ Facebook page regularly gain tens of thousands of shares, as well as scores of likes and comments.
The page is an extension of the website VineScope.com, which features the most popular, interesting and buzzworthy Vine videos. Users can add the hashtag #VineScope to their video to be considered.
Best Vines has now surpassed the official Instagram page (very impressive, considering Best Vines’ Facebook page is roughly a month and a half old) on Facebook and is growing much quicker:
