Rihanna Is No. 1 On Forbes List of Social Networking Superstars

Rih Rih comes out on top as a social networking powerhouse.

Published August 10, 2012

Rihanna is the new celebrity queen of social networking. The navy captain landed at the top of Forbes' list of social networking superstars due to her powerful social media presence. The rankings were calculated by adding Facebook and Twitter followers for various celebs. Rih Rih reigned supreme with 23.8 million Twitter followers and 59.6 million Facebook fans. Lady Gaga came in at number two with 28 million Twitter followers and 53 million Facebook fans. 


The Bajan pop star is known for speaking her mind through her tweets, and sparing none a smart remark. She's had Twitter beefs with the famous and ordinary people in the past about everything from her hair to her past relationship with Chris Brown.


Gaga takes a similar approach, engaging her fans and keeping the little monsters updated with her life. As of yet, she and Rih Rih have yet to acknowledge their new Forbes ranking, and thus, don’t seem to have any beef with each other competition wise. Other celebrities that made Forbes’ list include Eminem at number three, Justin Bieber at number four and Katy Perry at number five.
