Facebook logo on Facebook pageThese days, if you’re in business, you’re on social media and it’s a big job to manage a brand well on just one social media channel let alone multiple channels.  Big brands are spending tens of millions of dollars each year to build out their brand pages on social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and more.

The reason brands are doing this is because they know their customer spend a lot of time on social media sites and if you want to be in front of your customers, you need to be where they are.

The other big reason brands are busy on social media is because it’s profitable.  Brands that are engaging their customers in creative and relevant ways are seeing increased sales and exposure and social proof is considerably more influential on prospective customers than traditional marketing like billboards, radio, TV and print.  If my friends like something there is a good chance I’ll like it too.

This post takes a look at the top brands on Facebook based on how many fans they have.  The list and info is from a super cool website, fanpagelist.com, that tracks brand pages and many other categories on Facebook.  So without further ado, here are the Top 20 Brands on Facebook along with my commentary.
