It’s Monday and we’re looking at the latest Facebook Fandom breakdown. It’s been about a year since I did a report about Doctor Who, and with the latest season premiering this past weekend, it seemed like a perfect time to follow-up on last year’s report.
This data is gained through mining Facebook and includes about 50 terms related to Doctor Who, its characters, etc.
Since last year’s report some of the terms used have changed as well as general improvements to Facebook’s algorithm and system have occurred. So, changes in results may be due to that.
Facebook Population: Over 4,600,000 in the United States
That’s a decent increase of about 600,000 individuals since last year.
Spanish speakers account for now 520,000 fans, 11.3% in the United States.
Gender and Age
Previously, women made up of 50% of the population. Now, men now account for 52.17%, and women 47.83%. Both have made gains since last year, it’s just men have done so more.
This statistic has changed a lot since last year with many more options available to choose from. The percentages have shifted to the new categories, but it’s not easy to compare the two. What has stood out to me in the new stats is the amount of women married or widowed.
Like relationships, the education choices have expanded, so it’s difficult to compare it to last year. But, what’s amazing is women outnumbering men in almost every category other than “doctorate degree,” “college grad, and “high school grads.”
This category too has expanded with more choices than ever before. But, compared to last year, it looks like there’s been a slight decrease in those interested in the same sex.
