French rapper Rohff topped our list, as he continues to post about his most recent music and activities. Adele made the list once again, and Bruno Mars saw a bump after he becoming the tenth man to ever grace the cover of Playboy magazine.
Then there were sports pages. Real Madrid soccer star Ricardo Kakà saw some growth as he posted about his recent games, similar to Leo Messi who plays for Barcelona. Basketball player Jeremy Lin rode his wave of recent fame with minimal updates to this page. He’s been more active on his personal Timeline page, which now has 1.4 million subscribers. Then it seems like a couple of pages hit our list as a result of being consolidated with other pages, namely: 2010 World Cup and Venezuelan baseball team Navegantes del Magallanes.
Intel seems to be growing in connection with promotions giving away both merchandise and money. Most of the rest of the list included popular movie franchises, actors, TV shows or brands.
