Wen Jiabao joins Facebook - ?


This page in:

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has joined the ranks of politicians in Facebook, the social networking site --and has quickly jumped to the 8th position in number of followers (almost 30,000), as of early Friday in the US Eastern time zone. The legitimacy of the profile is not yet clear (the Chinese Foreign Ministry told news agencies it was unaware of the site and would look into it), and it could have been set up by a fan. The profile was created a couple of days after the Sichuan earthquake. Fans can add messages, videos and photos to the profile.

I am curious as to where you found the position ranking in terms of number of followers on facebook?

Just go to Wen Jiabao's profile at http://www.facebook.com/pages/-Wen-Jia-bao/13823116911?ref=s (if you're a Facebook member) and you'll see a link at the top right corner that says "Browse more politicians".
Quick update: right now he has 37,500+ supporters and is number 6 after Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Ron Paul, and Mike Huckabee.
