Last week, game developer Rockstar Games had three days where page Likes grew substantially, and the page’s PTAT has followed suit. Gaining over 5,000 new likes in one day, the page’s success is due in part to their game GTA V, the No. 9 top gaining page this week. Rockstar’s most popular page posts have been photo albums containing screenshots of the highly anticipated game. Using photo albums for increased engagement is a great strategy for increasing EdgeRank, and Rockstar has seen significant engagement not only with the photo album post, but each photo as well.

The No. 2 most talked about page this week is Farmville Neighbors, an unofficial fan page for website FarmVille-Masters.com. This a self-run fan page that offers news and updates of new items for FarmVille players. The page retains a large PTAT because of the frequency of posts. In the last 24 hours, the page has published over 30 posts, though most received fewer than 40 likes and only a handful of comments. However, this engagement accumulates and contributes to the page’s growing PTAT.

The page is also open to publishing identical posts at different times of the day. This could be to ensure more people see their posts, but for some users this could be considered spammy and can clutter user’s news feeds causing them to unsubscribe or unlike the page all together. Instead, they could elect to use promoted posts which will give them more prominence in user’s news feeds as well as mobile.
