Popular Ping Pong has launched a new version of its website and has released the End of 2012 Popularity Rankings for table tennis (ping pong brands).

New York, NY, January 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Popular Ping Pong announced the End of 2012 Rankings for the most popular table tennis brands to coincide with the launch of the group's new website and reaching over 5000 twitter followers. The rankings released are based on facebook fan count or “page likes.”

"Facebook is the most popular social network in the world, being on Facebook today is like having a phone number in the pre-internet days. Facebook encourages users to 'like' the brands they use and the activities they do within the website, so Facebook is an excellent way to gauge a brand’s popularity (at least to start). Moving forward PopularPingPong.com will add other metrics into our popularity rankings (including other social networks, media coverage, etc)," said Brett Richards, Popular Ping Pong's Head of Marketing.

Popular Ping Pong has also asked that those who represent a brand, company, venue, or group that may have been missed, to please email [email protected] or message PPP on twitter @PopularPingPong.

All rankings are as of January 1, 2013 and are based on page likes as of 1:27 pm that day (number to the right of the name represents the number of fans). Additional analysis and rankings are available at PopularPingPong.com.

Interesting list...I had not even heard of some of these. :oops: Not sure if 'likes' are the best measure, as they can so easily be 'bought'.

i can't be bought ,I just liked all the connections that worked (just to make it even)
mind you most of these sites are not really the same concept, some are brand selling and others are national, International table tennis federations and some shops

I didn't mean literally 'bought' or anything underhanded... it's just quite common to have things like competitions, specials and any other type of activity for 'members' only (which means you need to 'like' them to tale part. Nothing wrong with that, and it's a great way to promote themselves, it's just that this makes equating 'popularity' to the 'number of likes' quite distorted.

I've been in the internet long enough to have seen a trend. Its goes like this.

Awesome new free product/service + time = advertising and spam + more time = slow boring annoying + more time = bankrupt. Facebook is currently mid life
