The SFLTV July Social Networking Sweeps, Part One


July sweeps are over and done with, if you work in TV news we feel for you hope you threw yourself a nice party and then slept for 12 hours straight. We would, sweeps are crazy times not only for the viewers. Of course now is time for the TV stations to get busy with the promos that they all are number one, and teh bestest ever and … well you know the drill. With that in mind I decided see how our stations rank in the social networking space against each other. Our own Social Networking Sweeps ratings thing-a-ma-jig of sorts. Totally uber scientific based on the latest data.

So how many people want to be friends with a TV station on Facebook and how many follow them on Twitter? The condensed version goes something like this – on Facebook: 7, 4, 10, 6 and on Twitter: 7, 10, 6, 4.

WPTV and WSVN both have the most Facebook fans. On Twitter WSVN leads, with WPLG not far behind – only 198 followers away.
