Ronaldo Becomes The World’s Most Liked Person On Facebook

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo may be having a real rollercoaster of a year with life on and off the pitch, but in the social media world he is booming!

The three time Ballon d’Or winner recently became the most popular person in the world with 107 million likes on Facebook, a title previously held by pop star and wife of Barcelona defender Gerard Pique, Shakira.

The Portuguese's popularity in the social media realms is something quite staggering, as no athlete in the world is able to match his numbers... His rival Lionel Messi finds himself in 13th place overall, but is second amongst all the sporting athletes with 78 million likes.

It’s not only on Facebook where Ronaldo dominates. He’s also the number one followed athlete on Twitter. His total of more than 34 million followers puts him over a million clear of his nearest competitor who is, surprisingly, Ricardo Kaka.

Here are the Top 10 Athletes on Facebook:

1. Cristiano Ronaldo - 107m

2. Lionel Messi - 78m

3. David Beckham - 52m

4. Neymar  - 52m

5. Kaka  - 33m

6.  Ronaldinho  - 31m

7.  Mesut Ozil  - 28m

8.  Michael Jordan  - 28m

9.  Andres Iniesta  - 24m

10.  Kobe Bryant - 21m

Are you surprised to see Cristiano Ronaldo so far ahead of the pack on Facebook?
