AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Tops 10M Facebook Likes, Spoofs ‘The Social Network’

Hit AMC drama series “The Walking Dead” celebrated surpassing like No. 10 million on its Facebook page with a takeoff of the movie poster for The Social Network.

As first reported by Mashable, AMC played off the tag line from the Facebook movie, “You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies,” with, “You don’t get 10 million fans without eating a few.”

The zombie-themed cable series also spawned a Facebook game last month, The Walking Dead Social Game, which AMC created with RockYou and Eyes Wide Games.

The third season of “The Walking Dead” premieres on AMC Sunday, Oct. 14, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
