Top 10 most influential people on Facebook for 2012

Mashable.com, the online tech news site, has announced the top 10 most influential people on Facebook for 2012, and their choices may surprise you. First on the list is George Takei, the retired actor who once played Officer Sulu on the television show “Star Trek”. Now a popular social pundit with daily Facebook status updates and commentary, he enjoys millions of subscribers who regularly repost his witticisms to a larger audience. President Obama was named the second most influential Facebooker of the year, with 34 million likes to his official Facebook page alone. Indeed, his candidacy was marked by a sophisticated use of social media and pay per click ads that far outpaced the tech savvy of his competitors. Among the others listed for the year as the most powerful members of the social media platform: Governor Mike Huckabee, blogger Richard Metzger, and you, the average Facebook user, who helped to make Facebook 1 billion strong in 2012 and a social force to be reckoned with for years to come.
