    Each month, MediaShift posts a chart from Storyclash’s ranking of publishers and news stories that get the most social media interactions. Storyclash regularly publishes rankings of Social Media Trends, covering online articles with the most social media interactions on Facebook and Google+.

    The Huffington Post was at the top of the list in the month of May with 24 million interactions during the month. Rising quickly, the Huffington Post pushed the media broadcaster Shareably down to second place with a total of 19.5 million interactions — a decrease of 19 percent.

    Two key surges in the month of May came from CNN and The Washington Post, both of which increased their number of social media user interactions and moved up several ranks.


    In contrast, the biggest letdown within the top 10 was USA Today. The daily newspaper dropped down 5 ranks and lost its 2nd place on the podium,  thanks to a 38.6 percent decrease in interactions.

    Storyclash regularly publishes rankings of social media trends and reports about online articles with the most interactions on Facebook and Google+. Interactions are summarized as likes, shares, comments and reactions that trending articles generate. When comparing the top media publishers in social networks, it is the best method to review and rank them according to their total number of interactions related to the posts, not just the number of likes. Manuel Brosch is marketing manager at Storyclash.
