Facebook is the predecessor of sites like Twitter and Instagram, so, naturally the follower count is massive. However, other than the actual Facebook account, there are some accounts that have an insane amount of followers. We decided to share the 10 Most Followed Facebook Accounts with you.
Soccer stars, musicians, actors and even actual sports teams make the list below. While some of these accounts may surprise you, many of them gain success off of the global factor. The more famous the team, athlete or celebrity is globally, the more followers their have.
What we should say is that there are plenty of fake accounts that are created to follow celebrities. Some of these accounts are practically spam but are still counted in the overall number. Social media sites like Facebook have worked hard to try and rid those accounts but more just keep coming.
Nonetheless, we have still included the follower account for those list in our 10 Most Followed Facebook Accounts. These are not counting Facebook itself. Which account surprised you the most? Let us know in the comments section below.
