Messi and Ronaldo on Social Media

It is a well-known fact that Messi and Ronaldo are the two most skilled football players in the world. Whenever Barcelona and Juventus meet on the field, the two players can compare superb skills, and their fans have something to talk about for days or weeks afterward.

But their dominance does not stop the moment they leave the football field and take jerseys off. A big part of being a celebrity in any sphere of life is having a social media presence. Both Ronaldo and Messi have millions of followers, but which one the more loved social media star?

To answer this question, we’ll focus on some of the facts presented in the infographic comparing the two players, created by the team behind Betting Sites. It tells us all we need to know about the number of followers, likes, shares, and more.

Everybody knows that Ronaldo spends a lot of time on social media and enjoys being the center of attention. He is much more popular than Lionel Messi on the three biggest platforms — Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

He has 125 million followers on Instagram, 122.4 million on Facebook, and 72.9 million on Twitter. Compare that to Messi’s 91.1 million fans on Instagram, 89.5 million on Facebook, and 2.55 million on Twitter. It seems that Ronaldo is winning by a landslide.

Moreover, Ronaldo’s fans are more likely to interact on his posts and show him how much they like him. For example, his most popular post has 11.3 million likes and 157,000 comments, whereas Messi’s most popular post has 6.4 million likes and 52,000 comments.
