It appears a new Facebook record has been set for the rate of gaining Facebook fans. For those in the US that doubt the world popularity of soccer/footballers internationally, this might be a enlightening.
Seven hours after Argentine soccer player Leo Messi started a Facebook Page, he has gained almost 7 million fans. That’s crazy! A million an hour? Really?
In an effort to put that number into perspective, it’s nearly 40% as many fans as President Obama has on his Facebook Page, and about 30% as many as Justin Bieber fans have contributed to his Facebook Page… that being said, Messi’s Likes were gathered in hours, not years.
Messi, who plays for FC Barcelona is considered by many to be the best soccer player in the world.
Leo wrote in a translated welcome message on the page, “Hola! Welcome to everyone. Thank you very much for the great number of messages that I have received. I am so excited! From now on we will be more closely connected… through Facebook.” Uhhh yeah…. 7 Million fans tend to motivate you to do that huh?
The previous record holder, Lady Gaga beat President Obama to 10 million Likes last summer, however no one can recall anyone previously getting even close to hitting the 7million mark so quickly. Early indications from Facebook is that they are waiting so see when the momentum subsides but before they announce a formal record.
