Further down the list, we were surprised to find that many of the brands with the largest Facebook followings, such as Coca-Cola (36 million), Disney (29 million) and Red Bull (24 million), didn’t hit the top of the Google+ charts. In fact, Coca-Cola hasn’t yet launched its page, and Disney hasn’t yet posted to Disney World, the only official Disney Google+ page we could find.
TV shows — several of which, such as Family Guy, South Park and The Simpsons, have Facebook fanbases in the tens of millions — are also notably absent from the Google+ rankings.
