Metro’s huge jump in engagement is the result of a promotion last week. THQ offered free download codes for the PC version of the game in a page post which received over 12k likes. The page post has a clear call to action, encouraging users to share with their friends. With over 8.5k shares, the post has been able to go viral which is reflected in the page’s PTAT.
As it can be seen in the graph below, this promotion has sharply increased both the page’s engagement and page Likes. As a result, THQ will have a much larger audience to market their next game as its release date draws closer.
Of the other top gaining pages, Madden continues to grow steadily as it makes use of questions and clear calls to action on page posts about the current NFL season. GameStop highlights its holiday in-store promotions and encourages discussion among the console gaming community. The Hitman franchise has seen growth as well, despite receiving backlash about a controversial social game released earlier this month.
