MVPs of Social Media: Cubs Gives One Brand the Most Engaging Posts on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube at Once
The Chicago Cubs' World Series win made history for the team, ending a 108-year championship drought, and also made history for one brand on social media. Budweiser became the first brand to simultaneously have the most engaging brand posts on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. It essentially was the same post on each platform that did it: Bud's "Harry Caray's Last Call" video, depicting the late, beloved Cubs announcer seeming to call the Cubs' win.
