The Simpsons” topped our list for the second week in a row.  There were a pair of tech companies, Apple Inc. and Intel, that made the list, as did the Android app player for Windows PC, BlueStacks. Some sports pages, Cricket Australia and Jeremy Lin, grew by posting info related to their games. A few musicians who are currently touring made the list, LMFAO and Diggy.

A few game-related pages were led by Resident Evil 5. Four movie pages that appeared to be the result of page consolidations also made the list. “Titanic,” which is currently playing in 3-D theaters, came in at No. 12 on our list in part because of an ad campaign that promoted a Facebook event for the film’s release.

Finally, it appears that some brands benefitted from the shopping rush during Easter. Specifically, Target Style posted copious Easter-related photos, and Nutella and Walmart marketed their products in a holiday vein, too. Rounding out the list was Internet meme site  Forever Alone.
