Posted on October 16, 2012 by Joe Gill

Ronaldo Rules The Pitch & Social Media.

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo is ARGUABLY the best soccer player on the earth (unless you are a fan of Lionel Messi), but there is NO DISPUTING that he is the social media king. Ronaldo just eclipsed an eye popping 50 million fans on his Facebook page on Monday.

He thanked his fans:

Reaching 50.000.000 likes is unbelievable …I want to thank you, you you, you and everyone who have been supporting me all these years. I really want us to keep sharing all the good moments together – and the best is still to come. THANK YOU ALL

The post was shared 2,192 times, has 208, 934 likes and over 13,ooo comments. That is fan engagement at it’s BEST.

Ronaldo also took to Twitter to acknowledge his 13M followers for their support as well:

Ronaldo’s social media status is simply incredible. His 50M fans on Facebook accounts for 5% of users WORLDWIDE.

He has more fans than Real Madrid, the team he plays for.

Ronaldo is only 27 years old and he has many more years in front of him to dominate the pitch and the internet.

The world is his for the TAKING….
