18 June, 2009

Corona Extra is the favourite beer of Facebook users.

Corona was selected by Facebook users as their favorite beer in a "Pick Five" Favorite Beers survey, which collected the opinions of 2.5 million people on Facebook, according to PC World. The "Pick Five" Favorite Beers survey is part of a Facebook application where users worldwide choose their favorite five things based on different topics. Corona Extra topped the beer list, appearing 645,445 times. Other "Pick Five" lists include Best Albums of All Time, Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, and Favorite Movies of all Time, The Notebook. The top car Facebook users want is the 2009 Aston Martin.

Jim Sabia, EVP of marketing for Corona Extra and Crown Imports said: "These voluntary social surveys allow consumers to connect with the brand on their own terms, and we are thrilled to be selected as the favorite beer among these key users worldwide alongside other iconic choices like the Yankees and Friends."

The survey results illustrate the appeal of a wide range of beers. Following Corona at the top of the list were import brands Heineken, Guinness and Stella Artois and Budweiser. Facebook is the most popular social networking destination on the web, with 82.9 million unique visitors per month.†
