Finding Facebook Community Pages: The Top Twelve, Twice


I’ve had a few requests about the new Facebook community pages, so I will be updating my earlier post on Facebook Pages and Groups to include this new feature. In the meantime, the first step is to look at examples of the Facebook Community pages and see what they are like. The trouble is finding out if one exists on the topic you are interested in. Here are the top dozen most popular Facebook Community pages, according to one version of a Google search.

1. Shawshank Redemption
2. Basketball
3. Jacques D’Azur
4. Sweet Home Alabama
5. Sigourney Weaver
6. 3-D Film
7. Roger Ebert
8. Raiders of the Lost Ark
9. David Cross
10. Lost
11. The Cosby Show
12. Mariah Carey

Interesting set, almost all popular media figures, but a few surprises also. So how did I find these? All the Facebook Community pages have Wikipedia articles on them, so I started searching that way.

Google Search: Wikipedia site:facebook.com

That unfortunately also retrieved any Facebook content that was actually about Wikipedia, and meant I had to dig and dig to find the examples above. It will work, tho, if you add in a topic of interest. I did find a better way, though. Here is the new search and the top twelve from that.

1. V for Vendetta
2. Keys to the City
3. Man vs. Food
4. Strictly Sexual
5. Henry V (Shakespeare)
6. Star Trek Series V
7. Raymond vs Raymond
8. V the Final Battle
9. Roe vs Wade
10. Pagan Pride
11. Channel V Australia
12. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

Google Search: site:facebook.com inurl:v=wiki

All I can think is I am really out of touch with popular culture.
