Methodology Behind the KPIs

Rival IQ analyzed social media data from a random sample of 2,100 brands across 14 industries, including US-based and international companies that are active on social media. Engagement metrics are defined, per Rival IQ, as “measurable interactions on organic and paid social media posts, including likes, comments, favorites, retweets, shares, and reactions.” Engagement rates are calculated by dividing these interactions by total followers. Metrics represent median performance across the brands measured during each period.
