Celebrities had a great year on Facebook in 2012. Rihanna rose up the page charts to be the most popular human-based page on the social network, and several athletes saw their likes go up considerably around the time of the Olympic Games in London. However, Facebook’s popularity among those who don’t have iPhones or Android devices made Facebook for Every Phone the most popular page in 2012, according to Quintly.
