George Takei only has 3.6 million page Likes, but manages 4.2 million in PTAT. These impressive numbers are due to the virality of his posts. His posts receive a large amount of shares, which can then increase the page’s PTAT as friends of fans share posts without Liking the page.

All of this engagement is organic as Facebook would not approve photo posts with more than 20% text as News Feed Ads. The majority of Takei’s page posts do not follow this rule, but still receive incredible rates of engagement. This is mostly due to his place as a key influencer on Facebook.
