BZU tops social media pages ranking

The annual report on social media in Palestine, Social Palestine 2017, has been released, and Birzeit University has once again claimed the top spot in social media penetration and interaction, leading all Palestinian universities for the second year in a row.

Social Palestine 2017 is the second annual report published by Ipoke, a Palestinian digital marketing firm which carries out digital research projects and studies as well as audience studies. The report compared between Palestinian social media pages based on activity, interaction, number of followers, influence, penetration, targeted segments, sponsoring, and content.

The report shows that Birzeit University’s Facebook page, Birzeit University, is the leading social media page among local universities, based on the number of followers, interaction, and access. The page’s reach outside of Palestine was also considered one of its defining features. The report also indicates that Birzeit University tops the list in Palestine in total number of LinkedIn followers.

This announcement comes on the heels of uniRank’s Top 200 Universities on Facebook ranking publication, in which Birzeit University ranked first in Palestine, 6th in the Arab world, and 62nd worldwide.
