Saturday 30 July 2011
A look at the most popular Facebook trends according to global popularity engine Likester for the week ending July 29.
The death of British singer Amy Winehouse has seen tens of thousands of Facebook fans head to her page to pay their respects. Since her death, close to a million additional fans have "liked" her page, putting her total fan count at just over 3 million.
While the Apple Inc. Facebook page may not have any posts on it, close to a million people have shown their appreciation for the brand by liking it on Facebook.
The release of Apple's next generation operating system, Mac OS X Lion, and a swarm of iPhone 5 rumors circling the web may have a large part to play in the brand's appearance in Likester's trends.
The films " The Departed" and " Casablanca" appear in first and second places in Likester's top trends for the week while Argentinian actress "Belen Rodriguez" is sixth on the list of trending Facebook pages.
The Facebook page of "Being Human," a charitable organization run by Indian actor Salman Khan, has surged in popularity this week too.
