If the page was for Rupert Murdoch, it probably wouldn’t be so popular. But when it comes to all the names associated with Murdoch’s media giant News Corp (NASDAQ:NWS, NWSA), Facebook users are big fans.
Fox can take the most credit for the company’s success in this regard, as The Simpsons comes in at No. 7 while Family Guy has slipped to No. 15 for the most-liked pages. Together, they have more than 107 million likes. Adults aren’t just loving cartoons these days — they’re sharing that love on Facebook.
The stock of parent company News Corp also is having a stellar year. Shares have climbed nearly 40% since the start of 2012, thanks also to Fox News and election coverage.
