10 top global PR agency Facebook pages

The PulseWith its highly engaging environment and 800 million-plus user base, Facebook represents unlimited opportunity for companies looking to establish brand presence and develop long-standing relationships with customers and fans.  Many public relations and marketing professionals have found success in building communities around their brands (and their clients’ brands) and adapted their communication strategies to be more “Facebook-friendly.”  In this week’s Pulse, see if you can glean some tips from these world PR agency leaders who also lead in connecting, contributing and communicating online. We think you’ll find plenty to learn from here, and even more to “like.”

With thousands of agencies around the world with an established Facebook presence, how did we possibly narrow our list down to ten?  We started our worldwide hunt with the  Holmes Report 250 Global Ranking of PR Firms as our trusted guidebook. From there, we scoured the social media sphere to analyze what these agencies are doing to actively engage their online communities.   At The Pulse we look beyond mere numbers, so you won’t find many agencies on our list that rank based on numbers of “fans” alone.  Those featured that do have impressive followings actually made the cut because of how they’re using social media – what they’re sharing, who they mention, the quality of their content and the depth of their engagement.  Click on the embedded SlideShare presentation above to read the full report.

Here’s who made the cut in our list of “10 top global PR agency Facebook pages.”
