Everyone knows that Facebook was born in a Harvard University dorm room. But does everyone know which university has the most Facebook fans on its fan page? Yes, the answer is again Harvard. A few months ago, we wrote a post about which universities have the most Facebook fans. Topping the list was Harvard followed by University of Michigan, Ohio State University, Texas A&M, University of Texas, University of Florida, Penn State University, University of Alabama, Auburn University, and Michigan State University. No highly competitive school came anywhere near these universities in terms of Facebook fans on their fan page.
But now there’s a new milestone! Harvard and Facebook have a new connection…500,000 of them in fact. Harvard has indeed reached 500,000 Facebook fans, according to the “Harvard Crimson.” Marking the milestone, a post on Harvard’s fan page read, “Over half a million of you ‘Like’ this page! We’d like to thank all of you who have been following us here on Facebook for updates on teaching, research, life & learning at Harvard in Cambridge and around the world.”
