NBC nabbed first place on this week's list of Social Media MVPs using the tried and true technique of posting beautiful music for an audience of adoring fans to Facebook. What's maybe more commendable is how the apparently Tumblr-savvy MTV snuck onto the list by knowing its followers all too well -- nowhere would a My Chemical Romance meme be better received than on Tumblr, which you could call a hub for subcultures.
And, in a move that surpised approximately nobody, Victoria's Secret took over Instagram with an over-the-top glam shot of birthday girl and international model Sara Sampaio. The photo has 538,000 likes.
