Jesus Daily whoops Justin Bieber when it comes to engaged Facebook fans

Jesus Daily: followers love it

Justin Bieber might be king of Twitter but when it comes to engaged Facebook fans, he is pipped to the post by none other than Jesus.

According to the All Facebook blog, the world’s most engaged Facebook page – a measure based on ‘likes’, ‘shares’ and comments – is a page called Jesus Daily.

Jesus Daily has far fewer followers than Justin Bieber – around 7.6 million versus 34 million – but those followers have liked, shared and commented on the page’s content over 2.7 million times. Beliebers have managed a comparatively paltry 1.2 million interactions.

All Facebook’s list shows that religious-based Facebook pages have some of the most engaged fans – in the top 20 is The Bible, Jesus Christ, Dios Es Bueno! (God is Good!) and I’m a Muslim and I’m Proud.

Some other oddities turn up in the list of most engaged fans, including a page devoted to the Turkish army, and one for MTV Roadies, a reality TV show made by MTV India.

Interestingly, MTV Roadies is the closest thing to a brand on the top 20 (assuming you don’t think of Lady Gaga as a brand). So while brands are making great strides in using Facebook for marketing, they’re well off the celebrities and deitiesin engagement stakes.
