Best of 2023

Published • Written by • Categorized in About BFFC

After the huge spike from “The Mandalorian” Season 2 and then a smaller rise from “The Book of Boba Fett” in recent years past, we’ve now reached 186.5k followers this year when counting our website’s memberships alongside our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, and newcomer Threads. (We’ve also continued test driving Mastodon plus now Bluesky and TikTok.)

Here’s a recap of our most popular content from January 1 to today, December 31.

Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | BFFC News | YouTube

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 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.

Facebook

Here are our top 10 posts based on total likes (on our page which raked in 602k likes on posts) in 2023 Facebook, where we currently have over 78k fans:
