AI18 - Social Media!

Recommended Posts

Free for all. Judge/discuss/comment/rate/stat/etc. production's and contestants' non/effective use of social media. Less about their abilities/performances, but more about "ooh, they got a huge/small bump this week" or "they might/not be the fron-trunner" or "I wish production tweeted more!" lol

 

Idol has been pretty great with it's handling of contestants' social media presence during this ABC era and they even made it a point last year to boast the HUGE amount of fans the top finalists accumulated during the season, so I wanted to start a Social Media thread. There was a guy in the TV Forum that used to keep track of followers for each artist every week (with graphs and everything), but I don't know how to do that so this is just gonna be a very casual thing...if you know how/where to track social media followers feel free to post or let me know and I'll try it out!!

 

Oh, and I'll be focusing on the T20/21 contestants, but feel free to discuss others who you think made an impression!

I'll start it off with: i wish Sam would change her social media handles to her name lol

 

also, as far as intsa goes;

arthur got the biggest bump from ~1k to ~44k

francisco ~1k* to ~21k

louis ~7k to ~17k (surprised he isn't doing better tbh)

nick 218k to 224k

sam ~3k to ~8k (change ya handles, girl!)

 

*didn't get the actual number before premiere since he wasn't speculated to have made T20/21, but this is roughly what i remember in general

will post update sunday!

ok so based on insta:

 

grace's idol post has ~17.4k likes + ~330 comments (followers upped from ~11.5k to ~19k since last night)

lauren's idol post has ~9.3k likes + ~230 comments (followers upped from ~24.2k to 29.7k since last night)

 

can't compare anywhere else cause their performances are on the same video

 

let's see if this is the result we'll get between the two country singers
