Thanks in part to the year-long run up and debut of “The Book of Boba Fett,” which just premiered two days ago, we’ve surpassed 150,000 followers this year counting our website’s memberships with our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Tumblr. Our global team has expanded to new volunteers as we continue to create, organize, and signal boost great content. Here’s a recap of our most popular content from January 1 to today, December 31.
If all social platforms were awesome, we could compare all things on the same metric, but unfortunately some stats we can get with ease are based on reach/impressions/views and others are based on likes, the latter of which of course are harder to earn. We’ve noted that alongside each data set below.
Here are our top 10 posts based on total likes (on our page plus shared posts) in 2020 Facebook, where we currently have over 66k fans:
