BRANDZ, from Millward Brown Optimor, reports that FACEBOOK posted the fastest growth in brand value, growing by as much as 246% to 19MM USD. It still trails APPLE's value, which was valued at 154MM USD, and other tech brands such as Google (112MM USD) and Microsoft (78MM USD). But its growth is staggering.
After FACEBOOK, we've got BAIDU, the Chinese search engine that is slowly moving into other competencies in the mainland; it posted a growth of 141% to 23MM USD.
