Ever wondered which Overwatch league teams were the most active on Social Media? How about which teams had the most followers on Twitter or the most YouTube subscribers?
Rather than search for all that data your self, you can visit our new Data Lab (Beta) to see all this information and more curated and visualized in the same place!
In the graph above, we can see that when all social media are combined, Seoul Dynasty and Dallas Fuel are the stands out winners with the most overall combined followers. Then comes NYXL, Outlaws, and Shock who each has roughly the same combined social media following.
The top 10 consists of all original inaugural season teams, which is understandable considering they have been around longer and enjoyed incredible growth during the peak of the Overwatch Leagues popularity.
A Shock on Twitter
San Francisco Shock leads the pack on Twitter with 173K followers. Close behind is Dallas Fuel with 145k followers and in third place, the Houston Outlaws with 135k.
On the bottom of Twitter is Chengdu Hunters with 46k, Guangzhou Charge with 42k, and in last place, Washington Justice with 41k Twitter Followers.
The Facebook Dynasty
The South Korean rosters have a clear edge on Facebook, as it is still a major social media platform in the east. Seoul Dynasty enjoys 28k Facebook followers and NYXL comes in second with 25k.
After that is Dallas Fuel (20k), Houston Outlaws (17k) and LA Valiant (13k). Near the bottom is, once again, Guangzhou Charge, Chengdu Hunters, and Washington Justice, each with less than 1.2k followers on Facebook.
Premium YouTube Fuel
Dallas Fuel is the master of thumbnails and making videos last at least 10 minutes. Even if they aren't, they come in first place with 96k Youtuber subscribers. Seoul Dynasty takes 2nd place with 72k subscribers and Houston Outlaws takes third with 62k subscribers.
The bottom three are, once again, Washington Justice, Chengdu Hunters and Guangzhou Charge, each with less than 1.5k YouTube Subscribers.
