FB Likes 855K and Counting {Updated 2.13.12}

Ron Paul's Facebook page exceeded 700,000 "likes" recently and is currently at 710,350. 105,670 people are currently "talking about this" which shows not only a huge amount of people following Dr. Paul's status but are actively discussing, sharing and posting information about the good doctor and Liberty.

These numbers are great and give some indication about how strong his support is. Young and old, black and white, conservative and independent, a great mix of people from all backgrounds and walks of life. I know this doesn't necessarily translate into votes but I thought I would provide some information about this medium and his support there to those of you who don't use Facebook.

Gotta love those numbers!

Romney has 1.3 million

Romney has 1.3 million likes?! Seriously?

Yeah But Look at the "Talking About" #'s

If you look at the ratio of the number of "Likes" versus the number of "Talking About" it shows exactly what Romney's main issue is, excitement. If you compare those same numbers for Dr. Paul you will see a much higher level of excitement/sharing/discussing.
