Boholanos who are known to be present Â in all corners of the world are updated on local news developments through the social media, particularly through the Facebook accounts of The Bohol ChroinicleÂ andÂ DYRD Bohol Ang Kasaligan,Â which are both rated by Facebook to be on top among all newspaper and radio stations in the Visayas.
As of yesterday’s posting, the two FB accounts of the Bohol Chronicle Radio Corporation (BCRC) surpassed social media accounts of regional news giants in the entire Visayas in terms of “engagements.”Â
In the Visayas, FB ranked DYRD account to be number 1.
In Central Visayas (as of Feb. 24), the radio’s FB account registered 34.2K (34,200) reactors worldwide making it number 1.Â DYRD was followed by SuperBalita Cebu which registered 27.6K while The Bohol Chronicle FB account was ranked third with 20K reactors.
The Bohol Chronicle was followed by Cebu Daily News with 19.3K, fourth; SunStar Philippines, 17K, fifth and The Freeman with 6.6K.
In Western Visayas,(as of Feb. 25) DYRD was also ranked first and The Bohol Chronicle placed second. Bombo Radyo Bacolod, 13.1K, third;Â Visayan Daily Star, 7.5K, fourth; Panay News, 1.4K, fifth and The Daily Guardian, 54.
This high ranking in terms of engagements was garnered by Bohol’s twin media enterprise even as theirÂ number of followers could not surpass those of SunStar Philippines, Super Balita Cebu and Cebu Daily News.
BCRCâ€™s less than-a-year-old Facebook accounts managed to land 1st and 3rd in terms of reactions, shares and comments—a testament to the Boholano’s concern regarding current events and willingness to participate in discussions on issues that affect Bohol and the nation.Â
The rankings were based on Facebook official charts.
