The South Korean K-pop boy band, BTS, reigned at No 1 on Billboard’s Social 50 chart for the whole of this year.

Billboard released charts yesterday (Dec 24) for the final chart week for this year. BTS once again grabbed the No 1 spot.

Artists are ranked on the chart based on data from music analytics company Next Big Sound. It shows the most popular artists on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Wikipedia and Tumblr. A combination of weekly additions of friends/fans/followers with artist page views and engagement determines the ranking.

Since July 29, 2017, BTS has been in first place on the chart. The group continues to set new records for the longest consecutive period of time at No 1. It has spent every week in 2018 and this year at No 1.
