Starbucks Tops Brands on Facebook With a Chicken Sandwich, But Steph Curry's Birthday Owns Instagram

Marketer MVPs: Brands' Most Viral Posts This Week

Published on .

The fourth installment of our weekly chart showing brands' most engaging posts on social media finds two newcomers, Starbucks and Chanel. Rather than its coffee, Starbucks used Facebook to hype its Ancho Chipotle Chicken Sandwich. And Chanel aced Twitter with a video from Paris Fashion Week showing behind-the-scenes footage featuring new endorser Willow Smith.

The NBA couldn't be prevented from a fourth appearance on the chart, though, this time with an Instagram post using some ridiculous art to wish the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry a happy 28th birthday. Final score: 238,000 likes.

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:
