The Top and Flop of 2012 on CircleMe

We’re nearing the end of 2012, and besides looking back at what happened to CircleMe in 2012, we wanted to look at what happened within the CircleMe community!

2012 was an extraordinary and exciting one: We had massive product launches such as the iPhone 5, we thoroughly enjoyed the Oympic Games, great book and movie releases… And so, we couldn’t stop ourselves from looking into our data and see what was hot (and not so hot!) in 2012 on CircleMe!

Goods

2012 saw some greatly anticipated and competitive product launches: As Samsung’s Galaxy SIII launched, so too did the iPhone 5! And there was a ferocious fight for Circlers’ love. However, in the end the iPhone 5 claimed victory with 12.67% more Likes than the Galaxy SIII!

The iPhone 5 was one of the most anticipated launches of the year!

When it comes to fashion, Circlers are increasingly sharing more posts about their favorite products, which meant there was an increase in brand Likes. There were two big trendy names: Dolce and Gabbana grew the most in 2012 with 102 Likes but Burberry wasn’t too far with 101 during that period of time.

Dolce & Gabana had a great CircleMe year!

Food & Drinks

The Brazil 2014 World Cup? The Brazil 2016 Olympic Games? No: Coxinha is the word! This Brazilian snack food made of shredded chicken and spices took CircleMe’s foodies by storm going from 0 Likes at in May to 92 at the end of the year. We’re now booking our flights to Copacabana to try this popular Like!

Movies & TV

Geek seems to be the new trendy, and The Big Bang Theory keeps on becoming ever more popular! This year alone it bagged 926 Likes.

And what was the most Liked film released in 2012? For the Hammer of Thor!… That was The Avengers with 325 Likes, closely followed by The Dark Knight Rises with 314.

No surprises in this category you say? Well, although it was a top grossing film this year, we didn’t find the latest Twiligh movie amongst the top films of 2012.

Heroes

It’s been a bit over a year without Steve Jobs, yet his name certainly is not forgotten. This Like still managed to gain more Likes than any other ‘heroes’ out there in 2012!

Music

After winning countless awards and even having a baby, this was definitely a great year for Adele. And yet another proof is that she was the fastest growing musician in terms of Likes this year, increasing 4.76% from 2011!

A flop you ask? Our surprise in this category was Justin Bieber. Although he increased his following towards the end of the year, he still didn’t manage to reach the top 100 of Music Likes of 2012!

Passions

Photography continues to reign amongst artsy Circlers: 1956 people Liked this passion in 2012!
