The post, Fanpages: List of top 100+ Australian Facebook Fan Pages, provides the first glimpse of which organisations and brands in Australia are constructively using Facebook to build communities of interest, support campaigns and seek community feedback.
The diversity of Facebook's audience is visible just by looking at the five most popular pages:
- ACDC 1,950,000
- Bananas in Pajamas 1,132,000 (others include BiP 643,000)
- NZ Flight of the Conchords 726,000
- Hamish & Andy 648,552
- Hey Hey It’s Saturday 432,000
There are a number of other government sites further down in the list as well, starting with the Victorian government's Melbourne Australia page in 58th place with 23,000 fans.
It would be fantastic to see a comprehensive list of all the Facebook pages run by Australian governments - like the Twitter list I developed.
