As per the Pakistan Social Marketing Report for June 2014, Facebook is the most popular marketing website with 14.8 million Pakistani fans, followed by Twitter and YouTube. Hence it is clear where all the attention lies.

Fashion forward Pakistani’s still take the lead with the highest number of facebook fans (accumulated 18.7 million Pakistani fans). The beauty conscious Pakistani crowd (with accumulated 15 million Pakistani fans liking beauty pages) over takes the electronic industry (with 13 million accumulated fans) this month, closely followed by the telecom sector (12 million) and FMCGs (10 million).

The top five facebook brands for Pakistani consumers are OLX (2.4 million fans), Mobilink (2.3 million fans), Nokia (2.1 million fans), Ufone (1.9 million fans). On the 5th number we have Intel – out of 25 million fans on Intel,  7.3% fans are from Pakistan (1.8 million Pakistani fans). While in terms of post engagement rate the top five are completely different form last month- We have Walnut Media that captured attention by posting their new job vacancies on facebook, Chester Bernard promoted their latest collection extensively this month as well, Shaheen Air International, K-Electric, Nestle Acti-plus with their eat healthy campaign.

Q. Pakistan has 14.8million MAUs in total, but Fashion Pages have over 18million fans, how is that possible?

A. Facebook user can like more than one page. Facebook does not provide information on unique users. So, when industry accumulated fans are collected, it can be higher. e.g. there are 100 Pakistani Facebook users, 70 like one Fashion Page A, 35 like Fashion Page B and 25 like Fashion page C– accumulated fans liking Fashion pages would be 130 ! (more than total number of Fans)

Q. What is an interaction on a post?

A Facebook user on a post can do three actions – “Like” it, “Comment” on it OR “Share it”. Interaction is sum of LIKES + COMMENTS + SHARES.

Q. Why do you take Engagement Rate based on total interactions, which is a subset of total engagement? Facebook Insights also provides engagement rate, why is that not used?

A. Facebook insights are available to Page Admins. Socialbakers on the other hand provides reports about brands and competition without any requirement of Admin rights. Unique value offered by Socialbakers is that it can provide competitive reports using public facebook API. Hence,it only includes the interactions (likes + comments + shares). Socialbakers engagement rate is as accurate as it can get if you want market / competitive context too… BTW Socialbakers is used by almost 50% of Fortune 500 brands.
