Nowadays, an overwhelming number of businesses use Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) for their advertising purposes, but some are better at it than others. But how can one judge how good a company is performing of Facebook? Well, we see no better way than by taking into account the number of “likes” each company page received. The number of likes a business account receives indicated how many people are actually interested in the brand and are keeping up with that particular company’s updates.
Following, we would like to present you with a list we have compiled of the top 10 brands on Facebook in the US, ranked according to the number of likes received from residents of the United States. The countdown is based on the statistics issued by Socialbakers and Mashable. We have also included the percentage of total followers the number of US fans represents.
The top 2 brands on Facebook, at least for US users, are two retailers – Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) and Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT).
