"We looked back at the top content from Q3 2021, as we do every quarter, and saw that even though there has been a dip in content engagement relative to previous quarters, there are publishers that saw tens of millions of engagements on the platform and individual articles and posts that received millions of interactions on their own," the NewsWhip Analytics report reads.
