Arsenal wins the Social Media League
We’re using our application to monitor the world of soccer and doing so, we’ve accumulated hundreds of blogs around premiere league. And as we have introduced mapping capabilities… I could not help giving it a shot.
Voila: Here is the map of the Premiere League Blogosphere and it’s quite amazing.
- The cluster in red is Arsenal and the gunners seem to be the only team with a huge and strongly connected community. They clearly win Social media league. My friends from footbalistic.com are telling me this is the same on Twitter . On Facebook, ManU seems to do better.
- The cluster in green is “all other Premiere League Blogs” and this cluster is lead by the top influential blog overall.
- The small cluster in purple is the “Official cluster”, most of the team’s official blogs are in this cluster.
By the way, here is our top 10 (over 400) and as you can see, a lot of them at gonners.
