Adele and Rihanna were the only musicians on our list, which was unusual since musicians typically dominated this list each week. Brands and tech-related pages replaced them this week.

The Brazilian page Instituto Ayrton Senna – Ayrton Senna Institute is an unexpected No. 2 on our list. The page supporting a foundation created in the name of the late Formula One champion gained more than 1.3 million Likes this week, up from only about 33,000 Likes last week. It’s unclear whether the page had some sort of paid media push, but the racer’s nephew Bruno Senna has been in the news as he prepares for his debut in the Australian Grand Prix.
