The Huffington Post Tops Facebook Publishers In June

By David Cohen 

NewsWhipJune2014Chart650The Huffington Post was the top publisher on Facebook in June, in terms of both shares and overall interactions (likes, shares, and comments), according to the latest data from social media news aggregator NewsWhip.

NewsWhip also highlighted growth in June by BuzzFeed, Fox News Channel, and Elite Daily, as well as the emergence of a newcomer to its list, Israel-based viral site PlayBuzz, of which it wrote:

A new addition to the top 10 most-shared is PlayBuzz, an Israel-based viral site that has been gaining traffic quickly since its launch last December. PlayBuzz has scored possibly the fastest ascension to the upper reaches of the Facebook rankings, with a phenomenally low content output — less than 100 stories last month. While we saw some decline in the popularity of interactive quizzes for sites last month, PlayBuzz’s audience seems not to mind – a “Which 80s Heavy Metal Band Should You Be In?” quiz racked up over 924,000 interactions in June alone.
