Top Universities in Social Media
Posted on January 22nd 2013
Which US schools perform the best on social media? Track Social's Universities Zone tracks school performance on social media year round. As we push into the second half of the academic year, we thought it was time to assess how the schools stand.
So here are the Top Universities in Social Media and how they did it:
The school that gave birth to Facebook, ushering in the Social Era, tops our rankings on the back of a large audience, huge buzz, and topping the rankings on Twitter as well as Facebook.
Texas A&M is the leader in Engagement, getting amazing levels of response on both Facebook and Twitter from its enthusiastic fans. It can't quite compete with Harvard on notoriety, but you could argue its results are even better based on the response of their fans.
Another 'less-acclaimed' school to punch above its weight, LSU comes in second on Facebook overall, and also gets great levels of Engagement across platforms.
Yale tops the rankings on Social Presence - representing the amount of posting activity - meaning that they are a bit like a do-gooder student rising through the ranks on the back of sheer hard work. Which is not a terrible mantra to pass on to students.
Representing the west coast, Stanford round out the Top 5 with a solid record across platforms, with extra credit for their YouTube channel, which stood out from the pack.
Now for those universities that were just short of making it into our Top 5:
6. University of Michigan
7. Ohio State University
8. University of Texas at Austin
9. University of Florida
10. University of Wisconsin - Madison
