We all "like" Facebook Pages for two main reasons: to show support and to get news. It makes sense, then, that some pages have more likes than others. What doesn't make sense is the arbitrary way in which the Facebook community decides which pages to like and which to ignore.
This isn't to say that these pages are useless (though a few are), but it's still interesting to wonder what makes a digital crowd matching that of Yemen's entire population gather to support Skittles.
Take a look at our gallery above and witness the strange things millions of us have decided to "like."
Facebook is cleaning house with a purge of fake Facebook likes dubbed “Operation Unlike” by Techcrunch.
Shakira lost 26,406 Facebook likes Wednesday not because she is any less popular but because she is one of many celebrities targeted by fake Facebook likes.
While it's not particularly jaw-dropping that millions of people support an actor who is consistently in some of the biggest blockbusters of the year, it's worth noting that Diesel has more "likes" than both the Disney and Music pages. That's music as in, you know, the art form. In total, Diesel has more likes than Italy has citizens.
There are more fans of Skittles on Facebook than there are people in North Korea, though Dennis Rodman seems to draw inspiration from both.
4."Dear Pringles, I cannot fit my hand inside your tube of deliciousness."
Every society has its dissidents, and of Pringles' 26 million fans, roughly 1 million can't get the chips they need to survive,can you imagine that its a real existing page !!!
5. "I Dont care How Comfortable Crocs Are, You Look Like A Dumbass."
How come this Bizarre army united against Crocs is still together after five years of Zero activity !!
6."I HEART THE WEEKEND"
When rallied together, the amount of us who "heart" the weekend surpasses the number of people living in the Czech Republic by about 100,000. With those numbers, we could definitely institute some global "no work of Fridays" policies, right? lool

Now is the best time to quit. It’s never too late.
Why quitting smoking can seem so hard ?
Smoking tobacco is both a physical addiction and a psychological habit. The nicotine from cigarettes provides a temporary, and addictive, high. Eliminating that regular fix of nicotine will cause your body to experience physical withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Because of nicotine’s “feel good” effect on the brain, you may also have become accustomed to smoking as a way of coping with stress, depression, anxiety, or even boredom.
At the same time, the act of smoking is ingrained as a daily ritual. It may be an automatic response for you to smoke a cigarette with your morning coffee, while taking a break from work or school, or during your commute home at the end of a long day. Perhaps friends, family members, and colleagues smoke, and it has become part of the way you relate with them.
Quitting smoking is tough. You are going to spend time, energy, and maybe even money to try to quit. So it’s best to choose quit smoking methods that are proven to work.
We’ve reviewed the medical evidence and put a list of proven quit smoking methods, above. There are also some unproven quit smoking methods that people and companies may try to sell you.
