No matter how much we tried to avoid it, like it or not Facebook is now part of our lives. Businesses depend on Facebook for communication and for growing the fan base. Even if everyone is aware that Facebook’s primary objective is to make profit nobody can afford to ignore this massive resource, no matter if you are named PSG and have Qatar as main sponsor or you are called Monaco and have a Russian oligarch as main sponsor.
Since the number of likes is directly proportional to the success of a team PSG’s 19 million likes is proof of their value and impressive performances in the field. Of course amazing marketing skills and a huge budget can also generate hundreds of thousands of Facebook fans but we will leave that aspect aside.
First we should point out that Lyon’s fan base declined considerably ever since they stopped participating in the superior stages of European competitions and only started to recover last season when Lyon played pure and open football attracting fans from all over the world.
A final Ligue1 table looking like the Facebook Like table below is not that far fetched, maybe with the exception of Marseille in 2nd place (since they lost a couple of important players and fans love them because of history and heritage) and the last 3 places (the newcomers in Ligue1 will see a drastic rise in Facebook likes, maybe we can bet on that somewhere…)
