Data Point: The Top Corporate Citizens And Their Presence on Facebook


How much does the public “like” the best corporate citizens? In October 2011, the Reputation Institute and Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship unveiled its annual “Top 50 Companies with the Best Corporate Citizenship Reputations” list. PR News has been tracking the number of "likes" for the top 15, and it looks like it’s the Battle of the Package Delivery Companies. FedEx has scored the greatest increase in "likes," a nearly 300% gain from Oct. 17 to Dec. 8. Meanwhile, UPS has garnered a 50% increase in "likes." One thing is for sure—neither company is "mailing in" their Facebook effort.
