Communications agency Burson Cohn & Wolfe released the results of their 2021 International Sports Federation Social Media Ranking. The rankings sought to capture the social media footprint of the federations. The report provides a series of top 10 lists rankings of the most followed, most active, and most interacted with international federations (IF) on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and TikTok.

The International Federation of Swimming (FINA) ranked #2 this year in two categories: most interactions per post on Facebook and most views per video on Facebook. According to the report, FINA received 354,486 interactions per post (second to the International Cricket Council at 596,767). The report defines “interaction” with any like, comment, or share on the post.

FINA was also #1 in the ‘views per video’ category with 752,111, which was behind the ICC’s 1,013,872. In total FINA received 102,091,981 views on Facebook videos in 2021. On the 2020 report, FINA ranked 8th overall in the category with 143,698.

FINA also ranked 9th overall on the list of most followed IFs on LinkedIn with 10,942 followers, a 16% growth from the previous count.

FINA wasn’t in the top 10 in any of the Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, or TikTok rankings. FINA remains active on the majority of platforms, but does not seem to have pursued a following on TikTok.
