Chart: Average Social Shares Per Press Mention By Industry

Higher education institutions got the most bang for the buck in digital PR last year, enjoying an average of more than 121,000 social shares from press mentions per month. That exceeded the sports & entertainment and accommodation & food services industries, which enjoyed a sizable amount of press mentions but fewer social shares per mention, according to a TrackMaven report.
