PARIS (AFP) - Colombian pop star Shakira has become the first person to reach more than 100 million fans on Facebook, becoming the most “liked” celebrity on the social network in the process.

The multi-lingual singer, who recently performed at the closing ceremony of the 2014 Brazil World Cup, stands ahead of rivals Eminem and Rihanna, who have amassed 91.9 million and 89 million fans respectively.

The number of fans a person has on Facebook is measured by how many people have chosen to “like” their page and follow updates from it.
