Eminem Hits 60 Million Facebook Likes
Getting 10 million people to like you on Facebook isn’t easy and even big-name companies and brands struggle. But one category of people don’t struggle and they are celebrities. Love d by all, hated by a few; celebrities have no problem racking up likes and followers and proving this is Eminem.
The self-styled ‘slim shady’ is now officially the king of Facebook, having racked up 60 million likes to his fan page. That is the most likes for any living person and beats out popular pop icons Rihanna and Lady Gaga.
Presently the rap star gets around 26,000 likes each day; Rihanna who is second behind Eminem gets around 22,000 likes each day.
But there is another side to the story and that has to do with engagement. Whilst Eminem has the most likes, he doesn’t seem to command the highest level of engagement on Facebook. The ‘talking about this’ metric measures engagement of sorts and on Eminem’s page this number is 290,896. On Lady Gaga’s page this number is a staggering 1,209,588 with Rihanna commanding 1,016,304.
Clearly people who like Eminem don’t like talking; it’s either that or the way in which Gaga and Rihanna engage with their fans makes for more engagement. Whatever the case, the mum approach by Eminem doesn’t seem to have done much to dent his march to the top of the Facebook likes heap.
