With 179,000 people hitting the 'Like' button on the rapper's page every week, he becomes the first to accumulate 60.1 million in total.
Although he's rarely on the scene these past few months, Eminem proves himself quite popular without popping up. The rapper just hit a milestone in the Facebook world by being the first living person whose page on the social network has over 60 million likes.
Page Data noted that Eminem receives 60.1 million hits on the "Likes" button. He beats Rihanna who has 59.4 million fans, Lady GaGa who has 53 million and Justin Bieber who clocks in at 45.7 million. In overall rank, he's placed fifth behind Facebook For Every Phone, Facebook itself, Texas HoldEm Poker and Youtube.
According to the statistics, as many as 179,000 Facebook users like Eminem per week. However, he has not achieved the same cyber popularity on Twitter. GaGa still rules the microblogging site with more than 27.8 million followers. Eminem is only in the 19th rank with 11.8 million followers.
