Tracking Social Engagement for the College Football Playoff Top Six

Data provided by sponsorship valuation company Hookit shows how the College Football Playoff top six teams fared over the last week in terms of social media engagement. Hookit tracked the likes, shares, comments, and video views for posts by each school on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
Though just outside the top four, and so currently scheduled to miss out on inclusion in the Playoff games, No. 6 Georgia had the biggest bump in engagement this week, as measured by Hookit.. The Bulldog huge jump came thanks to their 36-17 victory over then-No. 13 Florida last Saturday. (And importantly for Georgia’s hopes, Florida even climbed the rankings to be picked No. 11 by the CFP committee on Tuesday.)
Being named No. 3 ahead of undefeated Notre Dame, also helped 7-1 LSU tick up in engagement on Wednesday.

No. 4 Notre Dame looked like the biggest bust of this six in terms of the engagement value of its posts. The Irish had a huge 15,099 posts over the week, especially leading up to the CFP rankings on Tuesday, but only translated that into a total engagement of just over 1 million—68.7 per post. None of the other top six had less than a four figure engagement per post.

YouTube was the least important social platform in terms of engagement for the CFP top six teams. Georgia marked the middle ground in terms of overall usage. Like all the other teams, the Bulldogs had comparatively low engagement on Twitter, but Georgia also had almost even engagement on both Facebook and Instagram. At the extremes, No. 1 Alabama’s engagement was predominantly through Instagram, whereas No. 2 Clemson, LSU, and No. 5 Michigan all did much better through Facebook.
