Retail Index Data Report

Expion’s F.A.V.E. 50 Social Retail Report analyzes the Facebook presence of 50 top U.S. retail brands during 2013, and unearths key social trends in the industry. F.A.V.E. is short for Fan Actions, Volume and Engagement – the key metrics used throughout the report to show how the retailers perform as a group, and against each other on Facebook.
