ABCs: Sister dailies’ online arm tops social media charts

The online arm of two sister dailies has featured in the top two for growth on both Facebook and Twitter.

ABC figures released today have revealed the fast growing regional press titles on social media from participating publishers.

Wales Online, which represents Trinity Mirror’s Welsh print products including the South Wales Echo and Western Mail, scored the highest increase in the number of Twitter ‘followers’ between January and June this year, when compared with the same period in 2015.

It also scored the second highest year-on-year increase for the number of Facebook ‘likes’, with that chart being topped by TM sister title the Southport Visiter.

TM submits social media data to ABC on a monthly basis, while for these six-monthly results comparable data from Archant and Midland News Association dailies was also included.

The full list of Facebook page likes, in order of year-on-year percentage change, is as follows:
