Simplify360’s proprietary listening tool is used for collecting the data and counting the number of mentions for each company.
A total of 20 global companies were considered in the analysis. The parameters considered for Twitter and Facebook were also gathered through Simplify360. In the analysis, a score called SSI (Simplify360 Social Index) is used for rating. SSI is a function of buzz score, Facebook engagement score and Twitter engagement score.
According to our research, Pfizer was the most social pharmaceutical company in the month of February with an SSI of 86, Novartis with 81 and Johnson & Johnson with 75 closely followed. In January however, Johnson & Johnson was on the top with an SSI of 82.

On Facebook, we found Bayer to be the clear leader with a very high fan count as well high engagement rate.
