UNO topped our list of fastest growing Facebook pages this week, perhaps in part because of what we mentioned last week, that app profile pages were removed on Feb. 1, spurring consolidation of some game pages.
Musicians were also popular, given that the Grammys were held Sunday. With Valentine’s Day this week, romantic films like “The Notebook” and “Titanic” saw significant gains. Pages on our list this week grew from between 464,600 to 1.1 million Likes. We compile this list with our PageData tool, which tracks page growth across Facebook.

UNO has been using status updates to engage fans, while Angry Birds shared more photos. Angry Birds launched a Facebook version of its popular game on Monday. Musicians were popular, especially Adele who was on the “60 Minutes” program before her big win at the Grammys. Whitney Houston‘s page saw a surge in Facebook fans after the singer died Saturday. Actor Will Smith has been posting photos from the set of his latest film.
Google products were popular — Google, YouTube and Google Chrome made the list. McDonald’s is apparently pairing its new chicken product marketing campaign with a CityVille promotion that might have influenced its growth.
“Titanic” has been on our list for the past few weeks because the movie is coming back to theaters soon in 3D, but as Valentine’s Day approached, it might have gotten another push. “The Notebook” jumped to No. 15 on our list as ABC Family began airing the romantic film from 2004. “Mr. Bean” also saw growth on the page after the trailer clip was released for the upcoming film.
