Religion

Ending comfortably where it was found for the vast majority of 2011, Jesus Daily‘s final week of the year was spent in the top spot after a 4,786,516-engagement statistic. Still on its heels hunting for a first-place finish, Dios Es Bueno collected 2,004,568 interactions.

Advancing to fourth, the holidays aided in The Bible‘s 1,145,678-engagement finish. Joyce Meyer Ministries engaged more than one-half of the religious organization’s fan base — Christmas posts added to the mix were met with great response — and it moved forward to the sixth position, totaling 892,325 participants in the discussion.

Sharing a similar story of improvement, ILoveAllaah.com garnered a 759,689-interactivity total, putting it in the ninth position for the week. In 13th, this main page dedicated to Jesus Christ saw 646,131 interactions.

Unable to maintain the momentum of the previous week, a decreasing 444,850 social networkers conversed on Renuevo de Plenitud, leading to a slip to 19th place.

International

Spending another week in third, Mario Teguh tallied 1,204,214 likes and comments. Terima Kasih Ibu took two steps forward to seventh, as 866,510 voices joined the conversation.

An improved profile picture and responses to regular video updates enabled Werevertumorro‘s noteworthy 743,749 comeback total that cut the countdown in half. Egypt’s We Are Khaled Said also had a big return in 16th, engaging an audience of 474,703 Facebook users.

Two international television shows ended in the 17th and 18th spots, respectively. In Indonesia, “Dahsyat” made an infrequent appearance; 451,488 interactions made the music-focused reality show a top engaging page. A regular to the countdown, “MTV Roadies,” amassed 445,903 responses.

The recent passing of Kim Jong Il played a role in Korea.com returning, as 402,363 contributors were heard in the conversation.

Music & Comedy

Justin Bieber‘s social media team heavily focused on Christmas in their updates, partially in support of the pop sensation’s latest release, and 1,052,671 posters helped it to make a progression to fifth place.

Sprinting forward, 735,873 commenters excited for upcoming Kevin Hart tour dates placed the comedian in 11th.

European Football

With time off until the end of the year, conversation slowed for the sports competitors in Europe. Real Madrid C.F.‘s smaller 858,962-conversation total led to a disappointing eighth place finish after last week’s improvement to fourth.

FC Barcelona also lost a lot of ground, and 651,533 responders left the team struggling in 12th. Two places behind, Manchester United followed the mold and saw a smaller 547,585 finish.

Social Network Games

The message was clear and common sense: Free giveaways helped in improving engagement totals. Zynga’s Texas Hold’em Poker continued down a similar social media path and achieved a 508,786-interaction total — a steady 15th-position finish.
