We finally hit the 1,000 fan plateau on Facebook and we want to thank everyone for the support. Although I am sure by the time this get’s posted someone will dislike us and we will drop to 999 again, but for now we are one thousandaires bitchesssssssssss. So keep it going and suggest it to all your friends it means a lot to us, thanks again.
In this age of instant Internet celebrity, anyone can become famous for 15 seconds (to rework Andy Warhol’s oft-quoted maxim). But what does famous mean exactly when anyone can have a Facebook fan page—those public pages on Facebook set up by brands, media outlets, celebs, and wanna-be celebs. As it turns out, being popular is not as easy as it looks. A full 77 percent of Facebook fan pages have less than 1,000 fans, according to an upcoming report by Sysomos, a social media monitoring and analytics firm.
Once a fan page is set up, anyone on Facebook can become your “fan,” which is like following someone on Twitter in that it doesn’t require a reciprocal friendship. Sysomos analyzed 600,000 fan pages on Facebook and came up with the distribution curve in the chart above. The vast bulk of fan pages have between 10 and 1,000 fans. Only 4 percent have more than 10,000 fans, and less than 1/20th of a percent have more than a million fans. It breaks down as follows:
* 95% of pages have more than 10 fans
* 65% of pages have more than 100 fans
* 23% of pages have more than 1,000 fans
* 4% of pages have more than 10,000 fans
* 0.76% of pages have more than 100,000 fans
* 0.047% of pages have more than one million fans (297 in total).
