What was popular over the past week on the Rallyverse social media channels? While our bread-and-butter might be talking about content marketing, social media and advertising, we can’t be too surprised to see some of our less topical posts earn attention.
Especially when it’s the week that a new Star Wars trailer debuts.
We’re only tracking the top five social posts this week, but, well, when posts about Star Wars make up three of our top five posts. Turns out that, um, we guess a lot of people like Star Wars? Oh, and emoji are involved in two out of five.
On to the list:
1. “It’s about time, world: Twitter Unveils Star Wars Emojis, and All Is Right With the Galaxy”
Why it worked: on the heels of the release of the Star Wars trailer, we posted this last Thursday night and it really took off, especially on Twitter. And, really, it’s all there: a social media hook, new emoji, and Star Wars. This was a trifecta of internet perfect.
2. “The Hubble telescope just turned 25 and holy wow these images are awesome.”
Why it worked: not quite Star Wars, but it isn’t too tough to sell space pr0n, especially on the Hubble telescope’s birthday. This got great play on Facebook for us.
3. “The United States uses the eggplant emoji more than any other nation.”
Why it worked: eggplant emoji. Giggle giggle.
4. “Happy Friday: Star Wars trailer recreated with LEGOs”
Why it worked: More Star Wars, this time multiplied by Lego. Also, it was a Friday afternoon and I would assume most people were pretty Work Twittered out.
Sure, you can watch it again: “New Star Wars trailer is out, all your favorites are back”
Why it worked: just a link to a trailer. Seriously, the internet can’t get enough.
