Facebook users interacted more about Republican nominee Donald Trump than they have about presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton following the Republican National Convention and heading into the Democratic National Convention.
From June 24 to July 23, Trump had more than 13 million more interactions with users on Facebook. Interactions in this case defined as “the total aggregate number of likes, posts, comments and shares made about a particular candidate within the timeframe. The interactions figure includes not only the activity on the candidate’s page, but all of the likes, posts, comments and shares about that candidate from throughout Facebook in the U.S./Pennsylvania.”
The data also revealed the top five political topics discussed throughout the past month:
1. Crime & Criminal Justice
2. Government Ethics
3. Racial Issues
5. Homeland Security & Terrorism
