With the growing popularity of the social media sites like Facebook, Twitter & YouTube, and its influence on the youth of today, a channel which recently hosted its annual awards, devised a special award to honor the actor who enjoyed maximum adoration from his/her fans.
The channel roped in experts at Asterii Analytics to find out who has the biggest fan following. And their data revealed that the person who emerged numero uno was none other than dabangg Salman Khan!
The research showed that the Salman had 7,408,859 fans on Facebook, 3,188,226 followers on Twitter, 60,567 videos on YouTube, 577,919 followers on Twitter fan clubs, 757,057 fans on Facebook fan clubs and 2,774 followers on Google+.
A source from the analytic company said, “We used sophisticated web analysis tools to scan millions of pages on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, blogs and online forums to quantify the total volume of buzz and conversations on our stars. A specially designed four phase methodology was used. A shortlist of 30+ possible candidates was developed in the first phase. We developed 25 parameters to rank the candidates on the total volume of buzz. Using this 4 phase process we came to a single score and the top three candidates were Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. And Salman Khan emerged as the winner with a consistently high margin.”
Way to go!
