Obama Victory Image Becomes Facebook's Most Liked Post

Not content with achieving the most retweeted tweet of all time after his presidential election victory (and second most retweeted tweet), Barack Obama has smashed Facebook's all-time 'Like' record.

Shortly after the president of the United States won re-election last night, a photo of the him embracing his wife Michelle was posted on his Facebook page. Currently, it boasts over 3.5 million likes.

The same image was also posted to the president's Twitter account. Soon after, he also set a new record on Twitter for the most retweeted tweet ever -- it's been retweeted over 700,000 times.

The next most popular tweet derived from Justin Bieber with under 224,000 retweets; it was in relation to a young fan who passed away due to cancer.

Meanwhile, an image posted on Mitt Romney's Facebook page received over a third of the 'likes' on Obama's record-setting post on the social networking site. A shot of the candidate and the words "Thank You" gathered over 700,000 virtual thumbs-up thus far.

    Cant stand this clown. And yet America decided to vote for the failure in chief after he allowed 4 Americans to be killed. And did nothing.

    Sir, do you believe Romney would be a good president? If so, you must be part of the 1%.
    Please leave the United States of America, whom, beyond your expectations, elected Obama for a second term; therefore, in obvious statement, a better candidate then the others on the ballot....At least according to how our election system works.

    But I support and respect the man, even though I'd rather see Ron Paul be his vice president, instead of Biden.

    Did nothing?
    What where you thinking? Going all out berserker mode and send troops and planes? Not how diplomacy works, son, quit applying your FPS games to real life. There was a whole debate in which the candidates talked on this matter. That area of the world is volatile, you must thread carefuly when bullets are involved.


    TL;DR - so, you think you know more than intelligence agencies and educated diplomats? :'3

    jozSir, do you believe Romney would be a good president? If so, you must be part of the 1%.Please leave the United States of America,Romney received almost 49% of the popular vote, so obviously it wasn't only 1% that would disagree with this statement. Politics is an ugly business, I have a hard enough time getting over all the corruption and back-room deals and favors that take place. The US government is not a form of representation, too many in Washington prop themselves up and give each other too many pats on each other's backs to be considered otherwise. Must be nice to vote for things like your own pay raises and have retirement benefits for life after only one term. Who do all these people really represent?

    Congrats on the triumphant Twitter victory, and I guess to Biebs hanging in 2nd.

    Nice false dichotomy there. If you don't like Obama, you must support Romney. I suggest taking some sort of intro to logic class.

    Your logic is astounding. Because someone doesn't know as much as the intelligence agencies (if you can even believe what they say) or educated diplomats (lol, seriously?) they shouldn't be outraged on Americans being killed after 4+ hours of being left on their own.

    Genius logic once again. It's funny that people's brains stop working right around election time.

    Look at the voter turnout though when you compare the popular vote. Obama had 6 Million fewer voters for this election, meanwhile Romney and the republican's had 1 Million fewer than John McCain.

    It seems that lots of voters simply didn't vote this time around, so it was in fact a close race.

  • Don't rage on Americans being killed. You don't want them killed, stop sending them off to other people's countries and sticking your noses in shit you don't understand.

    Blame your stupid foreign policy. Go back to being an isolationist and give the whole planet a break....
