Salman rules the social media
With more and more celebs making their presence feel on the social media platforms like - Facebook, Twitter and Youtube, a channel recently decided to devise a special award to honour the star who enjoys maximum fan support on the web.
Social media has made world such a small place that now a fan can easily connect with his favourite star by following him/her on Twitter or by simply liking his Facebook page. Social media has also given celebrities an easy way to communicate with their followers without leaving the comfort of their home. From promoting their films to supporting a cause, these platforms help create a buzz easily.
Now, to find out the most popular celebrity on the web space, the channel hired experts at Asterii Analytics and the results were not at all surprising. Bollywood's 'Dabangg' Khan came out as a clear winner for this category.
Salman Khan, whose last three releases - 'Dabangg 2', 'Ek Tha Tiger' and 'Bodyguard', easily made it to the 100 crore club, has 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+. These figures clearly show how popular Salman is and how crazy people are to know each and every detail about the actor's life.
According to a source from the analytic company, "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."
So it's clear, Salman is the king of the web space leaving behind the Badshah of Bollywood and even the 'Angry young man' Mr Bachchan.
