Rap superstar is officially the most popular person on Facebook after stealing the crown from late King of Pop, . The "Not Afraid" hitmaker overtook as the top living soul on the social networking website in February when his profile garnered almost 29 million "likes" from fans.

According to FameCount Online, only Jackson had more Facebook followers, until now. Eminem had surpassed the 30 million mark by Monday, March 14, leaving the "Thriller" legend trailing in second place with 29.8 million "likes".

But his power on Facebook doesn't come close to GaGa's on Twitter, the "Paparazzi" star leads all musicians with 8.7 million followers, while Eminem is placed just inside the top 20 artists on the micro-blogging site.
