In the third week of our new Marketer MVPs chart ranking the top branded posts in each of five key social media platforms, the NBA continues to reveal itself as a power player. But IBM and Disney, both of whom have also shown up in one of the first two installments, are beginning to emerge as steady hands as well.

We're using data on the week through Sunday provided by ListenFirst Media, which closely tracks engagement using measures such as likes, shares, comments, views and thumbs-ups. See the week's full chart and the posts themselves here -- and just click to see the post as it appeared in social media.
