  3. 3. Playhouse Thought Piece Page 3 08/02/2012 1 Introduction The first month of the New Year has come to an end so we at The Playhouse are bringing to you a sequel/update of the Top Nigerian Brands on Facebook & Twitter. We‟ve updated the Top Ten and, as mentioned previously, we‟ve also looked at some other specific „product‟ categories. The categories are:  Banks  Publications  Radio Stations  Consumer brands  Music, Male & Female  Public Office  Nollywood actors & actresses Once again:  „Success‟ is based on the number of „Likes‟ and „Followers‟ a brand has.  We have looked solely at the official Nigerian page of the brands.  The figures we have here were accurate as of the date we checked the page! Have a read and get back to us if you have any one you think deserves to be in the Top 10 and is not included in this piece, if you have a category you think we should be considering or if you have any comments you would like to share – info@playhousecomm.com.
  4. 4. Playhouse Thought Piece Page 4 08/02/2012 2 The Top Ten FACEBOOK BRANDS NO. OF LIKES 1 MTN NIGERIA 424,629 2 BEAT FM 365,900 3 COOL FM 211,858 4 VANGUARD 209,433 5 GT BANK 198,621 6 DAILY TRUST 140,407 7 ALWAYS 126,703 8 MTV BASE NIGERIA 94,309 9 STAR 82,392 10 FIRST BANK OF NIGERIA 77,934 TWITTER BRANDS NO OF FOLLOWERS 1 MTN 107,577 2 VANGUARD NEWSPAPER 57,051 3 CHANNELS TV 55,170 4 BEAT FM 50,234 5 SAHARA REPORTERS 40,900 6 PUNCH 40,694 7 BELLA NAIJA 27,532 8 COOL FM 21,908 9 THISDAY LIVE 20,933 10 GUARDIAN 20,400  MTN Nigeria maintains first position on both platforms increasing the gap between itself and its nearest competitor while on Twitter it has almost double the number of followers as the next brand.  On the Facebook chart, the only change from the previous month is that Star larger and First Bank have swapped positions.  There has been more activity on the Twitter chart with Vanguard moving up one position to 2nd , Channels TV leaps 3 places to 3rd (might be a reflection on their coverage of the Fuel subsidy protests and the strike), Beat FM and Punch both drop down 2 places, Rhythm 93.7 drops out of the chart, while the new kid on the block is Bella Naija.
  5. 5. Playhouse Thought Piece Page 5 08/02/2012 3 Top 10 Banks FACEBOOK BANKS TOP 10 NO OF LIKES 1 GT BANK 198 673 2 FIRST BANK OF NIGERIA 77982 3 ACCESS BANK 31 397 4 WEMA BANK 21 224 5 STANDARD CHARTERED 15 621 6 DIAMOND BANK 13 570 7 UBA 5 678 8 KEYSTONE(BANK PHB) 1 380 9 FIDELITY 1 231 10 ZENITH BANK 649 TWITTER BANKS TOP 10 NO OF FOLLOWERS 1 GT BANK 11 538 3 FIRST BANK OF NIGERIA 2 336 4 WEMA BANK 1 126 5 ZENITH BANK 1 096 6 ACCESS BANK 953 7 UBA 762 8 SKYE BANK 584 9 DIAMOND BANK 452 10 FIDELITY 166 2 BANK PHB 127  In the Nigerian Banking sector, top spot goes to GT Bank as far as Facebook and Twitter is concerned, second spot goes to First Bank of Nigeria on both platforms while Access bank and Wema bank (a regional bank) are in third place on Facebook and Twitter respectively.  Whilst over three quarters of the 20 Nigerian banks have a Facebook page, it is interesting to note that Zenith Bank makes into the Top Ten with less than 1,000 likes. This suggests that some of the banks might have a presence on the platform but they aren‟t really doing much with it.
  6. 6. Playhouse Thought Piece Page 6 08/02/2012 4 Top 10 Publications FACEBOOK PUBLICATIONS NO OF LIKES 1 VANGUARD 209433 2 DAILY TRUST 140407 3 SAHARA REPORTERS 75281 4 NIGERIAN TRIBUNE 32708 5 PUNCH NIGERIA 31233 6 THISDAY 22215 7 PM NEWS 13598 8 THE SUN NEWSPAPER 7586 9 LEADERSHIP NEWSPAPER 6680 10 DAILY TIMES 5950 TWITTER PUBLICATIONS NO OF FOLLOWERS 1 VANGUARD NEWSPAPER 57 051 2 SAHARA REPORTERS 40 900 3 PUNCH 40 694 4 GUARDIAN 20 400 5 THISDAY LIVE 15 822 6 DAILY TRUST 13 223 7 PM NEWS 11 208 8 DAILY TIMES 5 000 9 TELL MAGAZINE 4 684 10 LEADERSHIP NEWSPAPER 4 197  Taking a look at the top publications on Twitter for the month of January 2012, Vanguard newspapers still maintains top position on Facebook and Twitter, The Daily Trust comes second on Facebook but not doing so well on Twitter with a berth in sixth position.  Interesting to see the strong showing for Sahara Reporters which is basically an online only publication.
  7. 7. Playhouse Thought Piece Page 7 08/02/2012 5 Top 10 Radio Stations FACEBOOK RADIO STATIONS NO OF LIKES 1 BEAT FM 365 900 2 COOL FM 211 858 3 WAZOBIA FM 65 637 4 SPLASH FM 22 401 5 BRILLA FM 19 217 6 RAINBOW FM 11 722 8 RADIO CONTINENTAL 8 410 7 NAIJA FM 8 154 9 CLASSIC FM 8 141 10 RHYTHM 93.7 8 120 TWITTER RADIO STATIONS NO OF FOLLOWERS 1 BEAT FM 50 234 2 COOL FM 21 908 4 BRILLA FM 5 994 5 SPLASH FM 4 358 6 WAZOBIA FM 3 989 3 RHYTHM 93.7 2 108 7 RAINBOW FM 1 671 8 CLASSIC FM 1 436 9 NAIJA FM 1 107 10 RADIO CONTINENTAL 281  Beat FM and Cool FM reign supreme in 1st & 2nd spot on both platforms. Is their strong showing due to their target audience who are naturally heavy social media users or due to the cities they cover which contain the largest percentage of internet users (Lagos for Beat FM and Lagos & Abuja for Cool FM)?  Talk to media planners and they‟ll tell you that the internet is still mainly the preserve of the rich & educated in Nigeria. They‟ll also tell you that Wazobia FM‟s audience is the working class, yet it comes in no 3 on Facebook and no 6 on Twitter.
  8. 8. Playhouse Thought Piece Page 8 08/02/2012 6 Top 10 Consumer Brands FACEBOOK BRANDS NO OF LIKES 1 MTN NIGERIA 369 159 2 ALWAYS 126 703 3 MTV BASE NIGERIA 94 309 4 STAR 82 392 5 TAJ HAIR NIGERIA 62 412 6 GLO 57 125 7 SAMSUNG NIGERIA 53 876 8 ETISALAT 42 780 9 GUINNESS VIP 38 275 10 GULDER 38 001 TWITTER BRANDS NO OF FOLLOWERS 1 MTN 107 577 2 CHANNELS TV 55 170 3 ETISALAT 14 565 4 GLOBACOM 5 415 5 DSTV NIGERIA 2 937 6 AIRTEL 2 696 7 HENNESSY NIGERIA 1 333 8 DANGOTE GROUP 650 9 MALTINA 502 10 OANDO PLC 465  Looking at „consumer‟ brands, interesting to see that three of the four telcos are represented.  The low numbers on Twitter seem to indicate that the majority of consumer brands have not yet figured out how to use the platform.
  9. 9.

And as the „Oliver Twist;‟ video competition shows, he also knows how to utilise YouTube as well to reach his audience.  For the Female artists, is Nneka and Asa‟s strong showing on Facebook due to their international appeal?

  14. 14. Playhouse Thought Piece Page 14 08/02/2012 10 Our thoughts Still, thumbs up to MTN for their first position on both platforms. FACEBOOK Numerically MTN Nigeria added 6526 likes over the month, Cool FM added 4959. 1513 new people liked the Beat FM page and the Brand with the highest number of clicks on its like button is Vanguard newspaper with 30189 new likes over the past month. . TWITTER Just like on Facebook MTN Nigeria added 6526 new followers to keep the gap between it and other brands high, Vanguard newspaper had 18327 new followers over the month. The brand with the highest number of new followers is Channels TV with 34567 additional people following it. Bella Naija makes a new entry into the Top 10 on Twitter with 27532 followers (let‟s see how long it can stay in the Top 10). Finally we researched on-air personalities as part of our audit but found that most of them only have normal pages and haven‟t set themselves up with fan pages. Maybe they don‟t see themselves as „Brands/Personalities‟ yet? Maybe they should because I think that‟s the point the bucks, or Naira, will start rolling in for them in form of gigs, personal appearances etc. Well, that‟s it for now. Till the next report.
