Shakira has become the world’s most liked celebrity on Facebook, setting the record with over 100million fans.
Shakira joined Facebook in 2007.
“100 million fans on Facebook!” wrote Shakira in a hand- written note shared on Facebook on 18 July. “Thank you so much for joining me and propelling me on this incredible journey. I couldn’t do it without you all. Much love, Shak”
She comes ahead of Rihanna and Eminem, who have a respective 91.9 million and 89 million likes. To put Shakira’s Facebook figures into perspective, someone who works for the social media channel (who clearly had an enviably quiet few days in the office) has helpfully put together a few facts to add context to the figure.
Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Facebook, wrote on Shakira’s wall, saying: “Congrats! What an amazing milestone for an amazing person.”
