Pope Francis is ‘Number One’ on the Internet

18 novembre 2013

November 18, 2013 ( Perhaps the Pope isn’t the most popular person in the world, but apparently he is the most popular person on the web. Pope Francis took the number one spot under the ‘most talked about names.’ That’s according to a survey carried out by the Global Language Monitor, which tracks internet activity in English.

The number two spot taken by Obamacare, then the National Security Agency, followed by Edward Snowden and Kate Middleton.

Thanks to his Twitter account of @Pontifex, which has more than 10 million followers, the Pope didn’t fair too bad the ‘top words’ category.
He took the number four spot, but even that may have been because of a technicality. According to the survey, the top three slots were taken by words like: hashtag, ‘404,’ which is code for an unresponsive website and also by the word ‘fail’ which got a big boost when the Obamacare website was launched.
The internet research is based on English language blogs, social media and thousands of online news media.
