Last month, we told you all about Dior being #1 in Facebook post-likes, proving they know what's up when it comes getting their Facebook fans' attention.
Unfortunately, that victory was short-lived because Burberry has snatched the top spot away from them after receiving 138,000 post-likes in February.
Burberry was able to beat Dior by uploading photos from their spring campaign, showing off exclusive images from the Burberry Prorsum show and streaming it live. CCO Christopher Bailey even logged in to answer questions posted by the fans.
Way to go, Burberry! We like your style!

When it comes to the actual number of fans a page has, Converse leads in the fashion Facebook world.
But when it comes to post-likes, "likes" on actual content that show fan engagement, Dior wins by a landslide.
With 153,028 post-likes, Dior has proven that consumers are liking them consistently (and that their marketing team knows what they're doing)!!
Do U like their Facebook page?
