Film and musician Pages practically ruled our list of the top 20 growing Facebook Pages by the number of Likes. Although there did appear to be some Page consolidation coloring the numbers this week — some unknown musicians’ Pages and older films’ Page grew by millions of Likes — many among our list regulars continued their march towards growth. Pages on our list this week required 413,800 and 3.7 million Likes to make the top 20 this week. We compile these lists with our PageData tool, which tracks Page growth across Facebook.

Starting out with the movie Pages, “Titanic” took the number one spot this week; previously we had see a Community Page for this film on this list, but this week it was the actual film’s Page. Growing by 3.7 million Likes to 6.3 million total, mostly between Tuesday and Thursday of last week hints that this was a Page consolidation. “Braveheart” is a Page that was only recently created, but also grew most of its 2.4 million Likes in a few days last week, to 2.7 million.
