Last week, we looked at the fastest-growing Google+ pages using Mediabistro’s research tool, GPlusData. This week, we bring you the pages that have the most followers. While science dominated the fastest-growing pages, the top followed brands are pretty diverse in terms of subject matter. However, soccer (I mean football, for our European readers) had a good showing.
This list does not include the G+ pages for Google’s own properties. The top three followed pages on the social network were YouTube, Google Art Project and Android. Google Chrome, Google+ and Google Cultural Institute rank among the top 20.
National Geographic was the only Google+ page to be included in both lists. It’s still the fastest-growing G+ page, and has the fifth highest follower count.
Here are the runners up, who just missed being included in the chart:
- Chelsea Football Club
- Team Coco
- Real Madrid C.F.
Now without further ado, your top followed Google+ pages:
(Note: This chart does not include the pages of Google’s own properties.)
(Note 2: At the time of this writing, there seems to be a bug with Hugh Jackman’s +1 count)
