Salman Khan tops the social media

Salman Khan had a change of fate with “Wanted” that released in 2009. Action films were not being made in bulk around that time and thus this film got a positive response from the audience. Salman was rocketed to new found stardom and back-to-back hits have only propelled him further.

Today he has been able to rise to a position that has rocked Shah Rukh and Aamir from their slumber. Films like “Dabangg”, “Dabangg 2”, “Ready”, “Ek Tha Tiger” have made him one of the most commercially successful actors.

With his new found success, this star is now seen not only in films but in advertisements and television also. However, a new entry into this list is that of the social networking sites.

Salman has been touted as the most famous celebrity in the social media. He has glided past the likes of Amitabh Bachchan and his opponent Shah Rukh Khan.

An anonymous from Asterii Analytics has said, “We used sophisticated web analysis tools to scan millions of pages on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, blogs and online forums to quantify the total volume of buzz and conversations on our stars. A specially designed four phase methodology was used. A shortlist of 30+ possible candidates was developed in the first phase. We developed 25 parameters to rank the candidates on the total volume of buzz. Using this 4 phase process we came to a single score and the top three candidates were Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. And Salman Khan emerged as the winner with a consistently high margin.”

Salman Khan’s number of fans has been counted as 3,266,882 on Twitter and 7,516,597 on Facebook. The superstar also has pages made on Facebook and Twitter by his fan club. There are 577,919 and 757,057 followers on the Twitter and Facebook pages respectively.

Also there are 2,774 followers of Salman Khan on Google+ and 60,567 numbers of videos on the YouTube channel.

Thus it can be safely said that Salman Khan’s soaring popularity will remain unmatched by any, for some time now.

The star has some movies lined-up that he will be offering this year. His film “Sher Khan” that will be produced by brother Sohail Khan will release in 2013. His other film “Kick” that will be directed by Sajid Nadiadwala will also go on the floors this year. Deepika Padukone is the top contender for this film.
