  • Forbes has released its list of social networking superstars, using a formula that simply adds a star’s Twitter followers to his or her Facebook fans.

    According to the list, Rihanna comes out on top with 23.8 million Twitter followers and 59.6 million Facebook fans. She edges out Lady Gaga, who ranks No. 2 with 28 million Twitter followers and 53 million Facebook fans.

    Of the 10 on the list, most are musicians, with the magazine theorizing that music stars adopted social media platforms earlier than their film and TV counterparts. Selena Gomez (No. 10) is the only actress on the list, and Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo (No. 7) is only athlete to be crowned a social networking superstar.
