Disney (NYSE:DIS) is more than just a company; it’s a huge part of countless folks’ childhoods. And so it’s almost no surprise that when those kiddies grow up and, of course, create a Facebook profile of their own, they’re quick to express fondness for Walt’s wonderful world.
Yes, the media giant boasts a more-than-wonderful following on Facebook with more than 39 million fans. The company’s page updates followers with sweepstakes, promotions, trailers, images from countless classics and company news, such as the opening of Fantasyland earlier in the month.
In the past week, the page has gotten nearly 300,000 additional likes, but the stock is slightly in the red. Still, DIS has climbed an impressive 31% so far this year, more than doubling the gains of the S&P 500. The stock also has made headlines lately thanks to deals with Cox Communications and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX)
Plus, those likes are just for Disney itself — users also have flocked to pages for Disneyland, Disney Pixar, Disney Channel, Walt Disney World and films from Lion King to Bambi, although none of those sites had enough to make the top 30 and be factored in here.
