Find out how many more followers the new “Queen” has below!
[photogallerylink id=12390 align=left]Rihanna currently has 40,600,871 “likes” while Lady Gaga only has 40,566,928 “likes” on the social networking site. This only leaves a 33,943 difference between the two and earns Rihanna the honorary title of the “Queen of Facebook” from the social media statistical tracker Famecount. When the singer found out the news of her new title she updated her Facebook saying: “40 mil! 1 LOVE ‘RihannaNavy”. Although Rihanna may be the most popular female on Facebook when it comes to famous musicians in general RiRi still trails the “King” of Facebook, Eminem who has 43,306,964.
[photogallerylink id=38189 align=left]The singer has recently seen her social networking fame explode this year after the release of her latest album Loud and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. In February the singer became the fourth artist in history to achieve 1 billion YouTube views and is now the third most viewed star on the network with over 1.4 billion views which surpasses the “King of Facebook” Eminem. She recently became the 13th person in history to achieve 6 million Twitter followers, and is now the 3rd biggest social media star behind Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
Rihanna may now be the “Queen of Facebook” but Lady Gaga still holds her title on Twitter with 11,649,611 followers while RiRi only has a measly 6,112,825. With how fast Rihanna is rising in the social media world it wouldn’t be surprising if she surpassed all of Lady Gaga’s numbers.
