There seems to be this popularity contest going on among celebrities in the world of social networks, and you might just be surprised to hear who the “winner” is when it comes to an artist who has the most Facebook “likes”. I would suppose if you mentioned Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and perhaps even Michael Jackson, those perennial favorites would come close, but none of them are able to overhaul Eminem who recently managed to set the pace for the most Likes by a living person with a cool 60.1 million figure. This would place him heads above shoulders from the rest, and it clearly places him at number 5 on the list of the top 10 Facebook pages.
The App Data page showed that Eminem actually gains approximately 179,000 new Likes each week, and if you break it down, that would be 26,854 a day – more that a thousand Likes per hour! Rihanna is close behind at second place with 59.4 million Likes to date. The other Facebook pages with more Likes are not human though, with YouTube (61.2 million), Texas HoldEm Poker (63.8 million), Facebook itself (70.3 million) and the Facebook for Every Phone page (117.5 million) beating out Eminem.
