What Ties The Three People With 100,000,000 Facebook Fans Together? Soccer

Getting 100 milion followers on Facebook is a feat of popularity so insane that only three people thus far have managed it. Cristiano Ronaldo, Shakira and Vin Diesel are so popular if their Facebook followings were countries they would each be one of the most populous on Earth. When we discovered this information, we couldn't help but notice one commonality among the trio: the beautiful game. We'll explain.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 116 million Facebook followers, is very much involved with soccer, seeing as that's his job and the main thing he's known for (his banket salesman career has yet to take off). The Portuguese winger has won three Ballon d'Ors, as well as the Euro 2016 trophy and multiple Champions League titles.


(frantically googles whether Shakira and Gerard Pique are still together)

Colombian pop star Shakira has nearly 105 million Facebook followers. Since 2010, Shakira has been romantically involved with Barcelona center back Gerard Pique. The couple has two children togeter.

Vin Diesel

The newest member of the 100 million fan club, Vin Diesel is primarily known for being in movies in which he punches people or beats them with various hand tools. Also growling. Diesel's upcoming movie featuring him punching people and/or beating them with hand tools, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, features Brazil and Barcelona striker Neymar as some kind of kicking person. 

Works for us. Go soccer!
