Fanpage Trends UK October 2015

October didn’t bring any significant changes on Facebook in the UK. When looking at the best posts of the month, we can see what excited Britons the most over the last 30 days. Tesco is the winner with their Halloween post, followed by Britain First and The Labour Party. Other great posts came from Asos with their posts about world vegetarian day and the England Rugby team, who apologized to their fans for losing the game with New Zealand during the Rugby World Cup.
