As Steve Jobs stepped down, Facebook page went up

As former CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, resigned on August 25th from his position, Socialbakers would like to reflect on this history-making piece of news and offer some statistical insides from the life of this remarkable personality’s Facebook fan page.

Steve Jobs’s resignation letter filled yesterday the cover stories of all media, which were pointing to his successful life career as a leader in the revolution with Apple Computer. As history has taught us before, breaking news from the lives of extraordinary personalities

have an immense impact on the performance of their Facebook pages. This case was no different. In one single day the number of fans have increased by amazing 12.1% (22,821)!

While the fan growth has been relatively stable prior to Aug. 24th, we can see quite dramatic increase in this particular day of Aug. 25th, when the current number of fans reached 189,267. Given the Apple shares dropped 5% yesterday, it is important to point

out, that marketers should be able to quickly react to the potential rapid changes in the customers’ buying preferences of the Apple products.

As the change in the numbers provided in the article occurs very quickly, it is

recommended that you look for the current updates on our stats page:
