Today Facebook is one of the most popular social networks in the world. Be sure here you will find pages of your favorite stars and brands. On Facebook they share their creativity, unique shots of the working process, and, of course, life moments. People can’t imagine modern world without social networks because it makes us feel that we keep abreast and keep up with the times.
Recently, I looked at an article which was published seven years ago (socialochki.ru). It listed the Top 15 most popular pages on Facebook. And then I wondered what happened to these pages for such a long time. I analyzed the dynamics and saw the latest figures with the help of Popsters tool.
Well, here. In 2011 the top 15 was like this:

Easy way to find most popular posts on Social Media
I have done this analysis without making any special efforts. But it would have been much more difficult if I had not used the Popsters.com tool. And if to speak honestly, I did not even use all of its resources. In fact, it can be much more effective.
Here you can analyze and compare any pages you need at the same time, in lots of social networks, using different filters and sortings, text referring (analysis), analyzing hashtags. It can help to find the most popular publications (the pictures in this article are found thanks to this feature.), the most commented. But that is nothing if you saw its large number of metrics and graphics. It is very convenient, very informative. And it is fresh.
That is it who will help to understand what people in social networks are most interested in at the moment, how exactly to capture their attention, how to present your information so that it spreads out and is swallowed up.
