People Passes One Million Fans on Facebook

People magazine and Facebook are apparently a match made in heaven, because the title just became the first celebrity centric magazine to top one million fans on the social networking site.

According to People, it now boasts one of the biggest Facebook presences in the magazine category, thanks to contests such as allowing people to pick the “Sexiest Man Alive” on the site.
