Top 25 Facebook Pages January 2013

The list of most popular pages on Facebook in January 2013 doesn’t look too different from September 2012 when we last covered the PageData Top 25.

The No. 1 and No. 2 spots are still held by Facebook’s own company pages. Facebook for Every Phone is the official page for Facebook’s feature phone app. All of the other pages in the top 25 appeared on the list in September, except for MTV, which sits at No. 23. Zynga’s FarmVille, which formerly had the No. 23 position, has fallen out of the top 25 completely after losing more than 850,000 fans.

The rest of the list is mostly the same, apart from a few shifts. YouTube displaced Texas HoldEm Poker for the No. 3 spot. Rihanna overtook Eminem to become the most popular individual on Facebook, with the popstar’s page now No. 5 overall.

Coca-Cola moved up from No. 11 to No. 9. Harry Potter jumped ahead of Michael Jackson to No. 11. Katy Perry surpassed Justin Bieber and Family Guy.

Leo Messi moved ahead of Disney, putting the entertainment company at No. 25 to close out our list. See more popular pages and browse by category by visiting PageData.
