Using statistical tools at our sibling blog, AllFacebook, we have compiled a list of the most popular authors on Facebook.
UPDATE: The statistics in this post are drawn from the Facebook Pages Leaderboard at AllFacebook. These figures reflect the most popular authors among Facebook-created pages.
We’ve arranged these authors according the number of Facebook fans they counted as of this Nov. 11 writing. The list of 20 authors follows below, along with the number of fans they have collected. We’ll never be popular like these authors, but stop by the GalleyCat Facebook page for literary events, bookish contests, and free book listings. (Headline via John M. Cusick.)
|13.||J. K. Rowling||186,942|
|14.||Edgar Allen Poe||179,845|
|20.||J. R. R. Tolkien||143,159|
