Milan wins the title hands down. At least on the social networks
The rossoneri are the most liked and followed respectively on Facebook and Twitter. Juventus and Inter get on the podium
by Mohamed Ezzat and Federico Formica
Milan is facing huge problems in this 2013-2014 season and currently sits very far even from the Europa League qualification. But in the social networks, the rossoneri win the title hands down. With almost 18 million Facebook fans and 1,5 million followers on Twitter, Milan largely outperforms Juventus and Inter, respectively second and third in both the rankings. Roma and Napoli follow with an increasing audience, helped by the good results they are harvesting in these months.

But even the most famous Italian clubs fade in front of the 46 million fans of Barcelona on Facebook, 43,5 M who like Real Madrid or the 36,7 who like Manchester United. The newly-promoted Sassuolo is condemned to relegation in both on-field and social rankings together with Livorno, which does not have any Facebook or Twitter account. Astonishing, but true. Catania is a disaster on Twitter (only 9.600 followers and we are talking about a club that fills up its stadium very often) but does better on Facebook. Check it out yourself.
