Now that you're here, you're probably wondering, "Who the hell ARE the 11 most popular people on Facebook?" and "Why 11 and not 10?" Well, the answer to your first question will come later in the form of a listicle. The answer to the second: you're more likely to click on 11 things than 10, and we wouldn't be having this conversation if not for you clicking. So, welcome.
People talk on Facebook -- and these people are the most talked-about on all of the Facebooks on the Internet. While who's most popular isn't something the social media giant itself comments on, SocialBakers, a third-party company that provides Facebook analytics in real-time, has neatly compiled the information you so badly desire.
And honestly? The upper crust of Facebook has plenty in common. Most are people who've had international appeal for the last handful of years -- save for a few exceptions. No. 1 might surprise you, while no. 3 re-instills my faith that absurd action movies can solve the world's problems. Surprisingly absent from the top of the list: Tom Cruise, the Pope, and Ruben Studdard.
Without further ado, here's the top 11, along with their total number of likes the day this article was published.
