In an apparently widespread set of Page consolidations, several on our list grew by the hundreds of thousands in the span of a few days but had a daily growth of a few hundred — and most were obscure films, TV shows or bands. There were, however, several films and Pages on the list that we’ve seen before; it appears as though lots of Page consolidation occurred this past week. Pages on our list this week required 395,800 and 2.1 million Likes to make the top 20 this week. We compile these lists with our PageData tool, which tracks Page growth across Facebook.
