We took a look at Illinois Associations Facebook Likes…

The intention was to compare them to Pennsylvania Association Likes. I thought there was a chance that Pennsylvania Associations were either ahead or behind their Illinois counterparts (to be honest, I thought they might be behind) in their development of Facebook Pages as social networking opportunities. It seemed like a good comparison as the two states are very close in population size.

The difference doesn’t seem to be substantial. You can make an argument either way. There were more Pennsylvania associations with over 1000 Likes (9-4). There were more Illinois associations with over 300 Likes (26-21). But in general it seems like both states’ associations are growing at similar paces as far as Facebook visibility is concerned.

Here were the Illinois Association Like results (as before, the number of Likes, the name and Facebook link of the association:
