Media shapes the very fabric of society by influencing what people think and how they spend their time.So today we bring a list of top 10 media person in The World.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo
It may come as the biggest surprise for Americans who may not even know who this guy is. Cristiano is the king of Facebook with a record-breaking number of subscribers, and he`s a football superstar. In fact, he`s the best football (fine, soccer) player in the world. Honestly speaking, this title goes from him to Lionel Messi every other year, but whatever, Ronaldo is the champion on social media, so who cares? The photo of his family with a newborn baby girl became the most liked photo in history with more than 11 million likes! Cristiano has 126 million subscribers on Instagram, 122 million subscribers on Facebook, and 73 million subscribers on Twitter.
2. Justin Bieber
If you`ve started worrying that this top ten list will turn out to be an epitome of gender inequality, Justin Bieber comes to save the day. Spoiler alert! Our absolute social media champion is also male and you`ve probably already scrolled down to see who he is. Are you satisfied now? Good! Justin is practically an Internet`s child because it was YouTube which helped him to become famous and popular. He was discovered thanks to this platform.
3. Taylor Swift
Here we`re getting to the finalists of this social media competition and, of course, TayTay appears to be one of the most popular personalities in the online world. This is the field she beats Katy Perry at without a doubt. In case you didn`t know (you might have been living under a rock all this time), Taylor and Katy are practically enemies in show business. We can`t evaluate their vocals or quality of performance objectively but we can rely on pure math when it comes to social media influence. Taylor Swift doesn`t hold any records, but she`s the third most subscribed person on this planet.
this Colombian combination of beauty, brain, and talent has an impressively massive influence among Latinos. Half a billion people speak Spanish as a native language. Needless to say, that`s just a lot. So if you`re planning on learning this language, just start following Shakira on social media.

Yet another queen, who is the world champion! This time it`s Instagram. It`s Selena Gomez, everybody, and this girl is on fire every time when it comes to posting anything on social media.
