Jesus is the most-popular guy on Facebook

Photo: Facebook.comJustin Bieber may have more fans on Facebook, but Jesus Christ gets more engagement, according to, a site that tracks Facebook traffic. Or, at least, his words and wisdom inspire plenty of interaction, which is one metric by which social-media mavens measure popularity.

The Facebook page for Jesus Daily—where Dr. Aaron Tabor of Kernersville, N.C., posts Bible verses, religious artwork, news, and inspirational messages—has spent 18 weeks in the number one spot for engagement, which includes the number of posts, likes, and comments a page receives.

"I just started it as a hobby," Tabor, 41, told ABC News. He also runs a diet business, which has a separate Facebook page. "I looked at a friend’s page and there was a little Bible app at the bottom, and I thought people would want something more."
