Shareablee Ranks Publishers' Social Media Footprint

Shareablee Audience Engagement Ranking of Publishers uncovers which publishing brands have the highest social media engagement across verticals and platforms

NEW YORK, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareablee (http://www.shareablee.com), the leading social media benchmarking and audience engagement analysis firm, launched today a monthly ranking that reveals the social media engagement command of the leading online and print publishing brands in the U.S.

The Shareablee Audience Engagement Ranking of Publishers provides advertisers with a data-driven assessment of publishers' social media power. Shareablee's rankings are designed to shed light on measuring what matters as the media ecosystem matures.

Publishers' social media results are evaluated and ranked monthly according to audiences achieved across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Each month's ranking will identify the top 10 online and print publishers across all categories, along with the top three performing categories within publishing and each category's best-performing properties. The following metrics are used to compile rankings:

  • Unique engaged audience – the number of people who engage with a publisher's content in the report month
  • Quality of engagement – the portion of actions (post-level likes, shares, favorites, retweets and comments) attributable to a specified social media platform
  • Actions per post – the average number of actions that a publisher's post has received in a given period, which is a key indicator of the resonance of each individual communication

"Our data shows that publishers have a golden opportunity in social media right now. Over the past year, the average publisher has grown their total engaged audience by over 500%. On Facebook, the publishing industry drives a third of all comments, second only to television, and over a third of all shares. This is the perfect time for publishers and marketers to explore collaboration and take advantage of this upward momentum," notes Tania Yuki, CEO and founder of Shareablee.

For the month of June, 2014, the ranking of the top 10 online and print publishers across categories is as follows:
