Everton top of the league on social media

DAVID Moyes may have moved onwards and upwards to join champions Manchester United, but in social media terms his previous club Everton are top of the league.
New research from RadiumOne shows that while the Toffees may not have the biggest following, their fans engage the most with their posts – for example Aston Villa and Manchester City are working hard to keep their fans up-to-date (making 337 and 287 posts on Facebook in just 30 days respectively) their fans aren’t getting involved with the content, leaving them near the bottom of the table.
After Everton, Norwich City came second, followed by Manchester United, Southampton and Sunderland.
At the bottom of the table, Stoke City, Hull City Tigers and Swansea City would find themselves in the relegation positions as the least socially savvy teams in the league.
Abeed Janmohamed, Commercial Director at RadiumOne, said: “Despite Manchester United having an enormous following, our research goes to show that, in social at least, size isn’t everything.
“What this shows, I think, is that the clubs that have spent decades cultivating a strong community of real football fans are best placed to take advantage of social media, with passionate fans actively engaging with their clubs.”
