Rihanna has broken a social media record to become the first person to reach 70 million fans on Facebook! She lost out to Eminem when he reached the 60 million milestone before her, but after overtaking him last October she now leads by around half a million fans. Rihanna is also well on her way to 30 million Twitter followers, gaining around 100,000 new followers each week, according to Starcount.com‘s social media popularity leaderboard. She has a lot of ground to cover to reach number one here though – Justin Bieber is comfortably on top with his 38 million followers. The pair’s popularity battle extends to YouTube too – Rihanna briefly snatched the title earlier this year, but Bieber regained his crown and now has 100 million more views on his main channel, JustinBieberVEVO.
