Lions Are Winners When It Comes To Social Media

If I told you the Dallas Cowboys were generating the most social media presence on the web, you wouldn’t be surprised, right?

But what if I told you right behind the Cowboys were … the Detroit Lions.

Yes, the same Lions origination that has won two games since 2008, are runners-up in Networked Insights social media rankings.

The rankings were determined by using an algorithm that analyzes the conversations of 300 people on the web and 17 million websites over the past 30 days.

“My expectations was the (Washington) Redskins would be tops, since they are the (second-most valued team (at $1.55 billion), according to Forbes,” said Dan Neely, CEO of Networked Insights.

According to Neely, the Lions finished second in the study thanks to several overall No. 1 draft picks that generated online conversation and a loyal fan base.

I have a feeling that online conversation surrounding the Lions was more negative than positive. And after an 0-2 start, the same could be said for the Cowboys.

The entire Top 10 list is below:

1. Dallas Cowboys
2. Detroit Lions
3. San Diego Chargers
4. New York Jets
5. New York Giants
6. Washington Redskins
7. Minnesota Vikings
8. Seattle Seahawks
9. New England Patriots
10. Chicago Bears
