The top 15 leaders in the network are listed to the right and is charted over the course of 6 weeks.The network began with 9608 fans (9 thousand, 6 hundred and 8 fans) across 32 pages.Since then we have grown 26.5 percent, with Monday’s total of 12,154 fans. 12 thousand, 100 and 54 fans in 38 pages. Week over week, all the pages within the network are growing the total number of fans. Once several months go by, we will be able to chart larger period of time.40 percent of the pages have under 100 fans. Most of those pages just created their page and I hope to bring them up to the hundreds by the end of August.
