REPORT: Bieber And Gaga Are Facebook's Most Popular

Bieber fever barely edged the monsters of Lady Gaga to claim the most Facebook page views driven by musical artists in May.

So says Visibli, which analyzed the top 10 artists for May in terms of clicks received per shared link.

Visibli found that musicians attract 11.3 likes per shared link, compared with just 4.3 for the average page; this contrasts with a recent study by ShareThis, which determined that the average shared link draws 4.9 clicks.

During May, Bieber and Gaga crushed the competition. Here’s the breakdown on the number of page views for the month, as tallied by Visibli:

  1. Justin Bieber: 27.973 million
  2. Lady Gaga: 27.746 million.
  3. Bob Marley: 4.427 million
  4. Rihanna: 3.872 million
  5. Shakira: 3.647 million
  6. Linkin Park: 3.387 million
  7. Michael Jackson: 3.295 million
