Top 30 Facebook Fan Pages - Jan 2010

Facebook Fan Pages are still increasing in popularity. I have previously looked at the most popular Fan Pages (in May 2008, November 2008 and June 2009) and think it's about time I update the list.

Update - Largest Facebook Fan Pages - October 2010 here


At the end of 2008 only Barack Obama and Michael Phelps had more than 1 million fans. As you can see from the list below, the numbers have increased significantly - and Vin Diesel is now more popular than Barack Obama!

Here are the top 30 Facebook Fan Pages by number of fans (including URL):

Top 30 Facebook Fan Pages by number of fans (figures taken from Facebook)

Rather than driving to websites and micro-sites a number of advertisers are now actively promoting their Facebook fan pages (see Dance Flick using Google Search here.) Ad activity on Facebook, like the recent Starbucks promotion, also seem to be contributing to increasing the number of Fans of a particular page. I expect to see even more brands using ad activity to promote their Facebook Destination this year - how long before a TV ad is tagged with a Facebook URL?

If you want to know the details on any other pages leave a comment below and I will reply.

I'd also be interested to hear any thoughts on why Vin Diesel is so popular!

Great info and really useful in researching successful Facebook techniques. Found your regional Facebook Stats from 09 really handy too but couldn't find an update. I pulled some together for February 2010 and found over 60s still at University and under 18s with Uni degrees! You have to love stats. Makes advert targeting fun anyway :)
