Facebook Engagement September 2019: Johnson Outperforms Corbyn for First Time.

On this blog I take a regular look at the activities of the main political parties on social media. In the last month there has been a striking increase in engagement with posts published on the Facebook pages of the Conservatives and Boris Johnson. For the first time engagements with Boris Johnson's posts have overtaken those of Jeremy Corbyn. There were over 1.5m engagements (likes, reaction, shares and comments) with Boris Johnson's posts in September.

The details are set out in the two charts below.
