Out of the top 10, two pages are region specific. Kristi’s Kids and 12 News are news programs that are based out of Arizona and have broken the top 10 list by going viral. By looking at the graph below, you can see that 12 News has seen a PTAT increase of 783,624 engagements over the span of four days.

As a news broadcast, the page’s strategy revolves around reporting breaking news and building engagement from there. It posts multiple stories a day, publishing 37 posts in the last week. Though the most rapid increase in engagement took place a few weeks ago, the page is slowing building back up to similar numbers.

In contrast to 12 News’s consistency, Kristi’s Kids saw almost all of its engagement from a single post. With only 3,536 page Likes, the page earned almost 200 times as many engagements as actual page Likes. The single story earned over 614,079 people Likes, 12,978 comments and 24,796 shares. The post might have been shared by a huge influencer and picked up from there.
