Fanpage Trends UK November 2015

What interested Britons the most during the last month? Looking at the best posts of November, Britons were already thinking about…

Christmas. Sainsbury’s, the author of the best post of the month, mentioned Christmas Calamity and encouraged people to contribute to improving child literacy by buying a book by Judith Kerr, with all profits going to Save the Children UK already on November, 12th. Also second best post, posted by John Lewis, was about Christmas. On the other hand, 10 Downing Street, in its post placed fourth this month, wished fans "a happy and peaceful Diwali and prosperous New Year".

Twitter Trends UK November report

As we wrote in the editorial to the first edition of Twitter Trends UK, Twitter in the UK is totally dominated by musicians. This month’s edition of the report only confirms our observation. Harry Styles, who is the owner of the biggest Twitter profile in the UK with over 26M followers, was the author of 9 out of 10 best tweets of the month. Also both in November and in October and in September, the was the author of all three best tweets. He is not the one who tweets the most though. The highest number of tweets in November (and in October and in September) was published by the band One Direction. For a change, Adele was the one who three months in a row gained the highest number of new followers (over 423k in November), followed by One Direction in the last month and by Ed Sheeran in October and September.

What’s interesting is the fact that 4 out of 5 most engaging tweets published by UK brands were publish by football teams with Chelsea FC, Manchester United and Arsenal FC topping the ranking. The fourth most engaging tweet was published by Liverpool FC while the only real brand in the ranking was Sainsbury’s asking its followers on November 12th whether they were already feeling festive yet.
