Sysomos analyzed 600,000 fan pages on Facebook and came up with some great info… The vast bulk of Facebook fan pages have between 10 and 1,000 fans. Only 4 percent have more than 10,000 fans, and less than 1/20th of a percent have more than a million fans. It breaks down as follows:
- 95% of pages have more than 10 fans
- 65% of pages have more than 100 fans
- 23% of pages have more than 1,000 fans
- 4% of pages have more than 10,000 fans
- 0.76% of pages have more than 100,000 fans
- 0.047% of pages have more than one million fans (297 in total).
Only 23% of FaceBook FAN PAGES have more then 1000 FANS…yes 77% of FACEBOOK FAN PAGES have less then 1000 FANS. Is it worth it to make a FAN PAGE and for what?
We are close to the 1000 mark for B.YONEST FAN PAGE (click here) – it took us about 6 months to get over 750 FANS. We have Fans from just over 20 countries. How would that have been possible 10 years ago?
The article goes on to discuss a difference between facebook and twitter:
“And unlike on Twitter, where popularity is correlated with how many times you Tweet, Facebook fan pages tend to be updated only once every 16 days. (not us, we update daily) And that’s really the big difference between Facebook fans and Twitter followers. On Twitter, you follow someone because you want to hear what they have to say. On Facebook, you fan them just to show your support of affinity. Too often, it’s a throwaway gesture. But then, fame is fleeting.”
