Facebook for Every Phone grew by more than 3 million Likes during the past week. Users of Facebook’s feature phone app are prompted to Like the page when they log in. Sports pages, specifically football clubs and stars, were very popular. Footballers Neymar Jr. Oficial and Cristiano Ronaldo, as well football clubs Real Madrid C.F. and FC Barcelona made the list with growth in the hundreds of thousands. These pages post copious photos and videos related to game activity, rallying fans around the team.
Movie-related pages continue to be very popular, even when they don’t post very frequently. These pages are ready have a tremendous fan base, thus a single post generates a lot of activity. For example, a video on the “Eclipse” page received tens of thousands of Likes and a video on the “Titanic” page received more than 2,500 comments.
Finally, the popular TV show “The Simpsons” continues to see growth on page based on a combination of popularity and frequent posts, and the Samsung Mobile USA page is currently giving away phones and other related prizes. The Samsung page seems to be running Facebook ads — including premium logout ads — to get new fans.
