Yesterday we talked about Marco Rubio being in the TrendPo Top Ten based on strong social numbers. But today, Senator Rubio gets knocked out by another online favorite Rand Paul who jumped 30 spots in one day to reach the TrendPo Top Ten.
Digging deeper into the numbers, we can clearly see Rand Paul getting a bump on Friday from his Facebook Talked Abouts:
But what exactly happened Friday on his Facebook page? We went and looked.
Normally, Senator Paul gets a few hundred Facebook shares from his posts — 200, 300, 600, etc. Never over 1,000. But on Thursday Oct. 24th, he shared this image:
This post was shared 16,594 times with 2,658 comments. This was the catalytic post that bumped up his Facebook Talked About numbers so high last week. And it will continue to pad his TrendPo Rank numbers for the next 5 days.
Kudos Mr. Paul, for scoring an awesome social post.
Facebook Talked Abouts is the number of unique users who have created a story about a page in a 7 day period.
