FNC is No. 1 News Organization on Facebook

FNCLogo_5.28According to data provided by Social Bakers, Fox News Channel is the No. 1 news organization on Facebook based on domestic fans and engagement.

FNC has been delivering more domestic Facebook fans than any other news organization on the social network for 29 consecutive months (as of Oct 26, 2014). In addition, FNC delivered 13 million interactions in the month of October, ahead of The Huffington Post with 10.9 million and BuzzFeed with 7.1 million. “Interactions” are the combination of like, comments and shares on the social media site.

This might seem hard to believe, but the survey shows FNC’s Facebook post coverage of the Ottawa Shooting averaged 534,595 interactions – beating ABC, The Huffington Post, NBC News, CNN, The New York Times, MSNBC and CBS News’ coverage combined. See the report after the jump.  Read more

MSNBC Letting Facebook Users Decide Which Season of Lockup to Air

MSNBC had a dilemma: With prison documentary series Lockup set to debut another season July 2, the network had two seasons ready to air, on Boston and Tampa, Fla. So it turned to its 102,944 (at post time) Facebook fans to help it decide.

The network posted a poll on the Lockup Facebook page Friday, asking fans to choose whether the season starting July 2 should feature Boston or Tampa.

At the time of this post, Boston was running away with the voting, holding a 996-441 lead, but voting runs through June 26, so Tampa prison aficionados still have time to lock up Lockup.

Bin Laden Killed: CNN’s Online Properties Boosted by News

CNN released some early statistics for its coverage of the death of Osama Bin Laden on CNN.com, CNN iReport, CNN Mobile, Facebook, and Twitter (@CNN and @cnnbrk).

The site also announced 13.8 million total global video starts (live and video-on-demand), up 725 percent versus the prior four-week average, and 2.6 million live video views, more than 100 times normal levels.

Citizen journalism initiative iReport received 407 submissions related to Bin Laden’s death, with 71 vetted for use on CNN’s platforms. The total was 35 percent higher than the first day of coverage of the earthquake in Japan.

The Best Thing You'll Read About the UConn Women's Bball Streak

As Bill Simmons says, vigorous co-sign.

Go read the story, if for no other reason than the quote from John Wooden‘s grandson is perfectly fitting (and its inclusion is a good example of what makes Richard Deitsch so special).

CNBC Likes Facebook Enough to Produce a Documentary About It

Here’s a programming announcement that CNBC really wants you to know about. The network is producing a documentary on Facebook, but it won’t hit the air for another three months. It could be that CNBC is taking advantage of last week’s release of “The Social Network,” (#1 at the box office) or the fact that biz channel Bloomberg also announced this week it is debuting a new series of docs, with the premiere episode about Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. NBC News anchor Lester Holt is reporting the CNBC doc.

The Unstoppable High School Football Growth Market

Friday Night Lights might have trouble staying on the air, but we’re about to be inundated with a whole lot more real high school football. ESPN launches its expanded RISE High School Football Kickoff on Friday night with a match between Manatee High and Tampa Plant. (Amazingly, this is a preseason matchup.)

The game is the first of between 28 and 30 the Worldwide Leader will broadcast during the coming season. ESPN2 will show a tilt between Sacramento schools Grant and Folsom.

Don’t look for the attention to high school football – and sports in general – to fall off anytime soon.

“We are networks driven by ratings,” ESPN director of high school programming Dan Margulis told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “At the end of the day, an elite high school game with an elite player has better chance to draw more than a smaller college game.”

Other venues are getting into the act as well. Read more
