While some people are hitting the beach this Memorial Day others are using the long weekend to finally get to those projects around the house that they’ve been putting off. If you’re not sure where to head for your DIY supplies, perhaps this week’s Social Media Face Off will help. We’ve put two of the largest home improvement retailers—Home Depot and Lowe’s—head-to-head to see who comes out on top in social.
In order to compare the brands, we set up search streams for each brand in the uberVU platform, including variations in spelling (e.g. “Lowes” and “Lowe’s”). We’ve compared the results from the past two weeks to determine our winner.
Roll up your sleeves. Let’s see who’s mastering social renovations.
Round One: Mentions
With 3,282 mentions, Home Depot wins the first round, easily outperforming Lowe’s 2,876 mentions.
