Obama’s Facebook Group Hits 1,000,000

Barack Obama’s Facebook profile hit the one million mark on supporters tonight, and then blew past it. As of this writing, there are 1,007,643 members in his group, and by hitting the reload button, you can add to that total with each passing minute. The campaign claims this number makes it the most popular place on Facebook.

The Obama page has by far more supporters than any other page – whether it’s a politician, celebrity, or band – on all of Facebook.

While Obama’s group is considerably bigger than John McCain’s, which claims only 147,666 supporters, it’s not the biggest ever — or even recently. That honor would go to another.

The first million-strong group to actually reach its goal was the anti-Hillary Facebook group One Million Against Hillary Clinton, which crossed one million two months ago.
