2011-02-25 08:59

New York – It’s official: Eminem is the most “liked’’ living artist on Facebook.

The Detroit rapper overtook Lady Gaga this week for the distinction, currently coming in at over 28 883 000 “likes” as opposed to Gaga’s 28 872 000.

Eminem (38) is currently averaging more than half-a-million “likes” a day, according to Famecount. At this rate, he will soon surpass Michael Jackson as the most “liked” artist on Facebook, as the King of Pop currently sits at 29.1 million “likes”.

However, in the broader picture of social influence, Gaga is far ahead of Eminem in terms of Twitter followers, with more than 5 million more followers than he; he also goes through long dark periods.

And earlier this week, the rapper reached 1 billion plays on YouTube, making him only the third artist to pull off the achievement.

However, he still trails both Gaga and Justin Bieber in the category by more than 190 million and 340 million plays, respectively.
