    Hi,

    I quite don’t follow your criteria and also see there are some wrong figures here.

    Take the example of Santander UK. Facebook likes -> 122.996. Truth is they already surpassed 200k months ago.

    Same company on Twitter: followers are pulled from the customer support account (@santanderukhelp: 5.075) whereas the general profile has around 23k followers. Same case for RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland), with 27k followers on their general profile, but only 9.6k for the customer care handle. Another example is First Direct (stated to have 5k followers because the source was the customer support handle, they double this number in their general handle).

    This is funny because for #1 (Wells Fargo) you are actually not taking into consideration their customer support acccount on Twitter (@Ask_WellsFargo: 32k followers) but the general account (@WellsFargo, with over 160k followers). Same happens with Bank of America, being on top on the list because of their 402,000 followers on Twitter in their general handle, when they only have 80k followers for their customer support handle, Capital One (116k vs 24k).

    I believe whichever the criteria is, it should remain consistent for your analysis to be reliable. Moreover when apparently US banks (BoA, WF, Capital1) are ranking higher than banks in UK (Santander, RBS, First Direct) because of these discrepancies in the criteria.

    Regards.

  2. We use the account for each social media platform that was provided to us by the financial institution. We’ve told all financial institutions that we only factor one account per platform in our database, and that we recommend/prefer they give us the one account with the most fans/followers/video views. Things change over time… some institutions abandon an account, create new accounts, or shift attention to another account. There are many reasons one account becomes more popular with consumers than other, older ones.

    When we add an institution to the database, we often check to verify if the bank or credit union has any other social media accounts that could possibly have more fans/followers/views. We do our best to capture the right account initially, but we don’t (we can’t!) perform a comprehensive environmental scan every quarter to ensure that we are still drawing from the most popular accounts that every institution in the database may be maintaining.

    In short, there is no deliberate bias, and certainly nothing remotely proximate to xenophobia.

    In the end, this system/tool isn’t a definitive ranking. It’s intended to be nothing more than a guide to help financial marketers find those institutions with traction in social channels, and then identify what those institutions might be doing well.

  3. Shelly Lewellen says:

    This is a great tool. It definitely shows what banks are doing it well.
    One thought, it would be nice if banks could compare themselves to others of their deposit size or region.

  4. Dear Team,

    Thanks for the update report on the Top 100 Banks using Social Media.

    I don’t quite disagree with you as regards this report on the Q2, 2015, especially the report on Nigerian Banks. I will appreciate a detailed research is done before you publish. See what http://www.socialbakers.com as regards Nigerian Banks here; Facebook: http://www.socialbakers.com/statistics/facebook/pages/total/nigeria/brands/finance/, Twitter: http://www.socialbakers.com/statistics/twitter/profiles/nigeria/brands/finance/
    YouTube: http://www.socialbakers.com/statistics/youtube/channels/nigeria/brands/finance/

    I will appreciate if your criteria is well spelt out to avoid discrepancies in your report.

    Best wish,

    Adewunmi
