A few notes about this week’s lists:

Last week our “Top 10” included many social games.  This week we are seeing more celebrity pages included.  Perhaps this is tied to current events.  For example, Lil Wayne was just released from jail and has had a resurgence in news exposure this past week.  It will be interesting to continue tracking this trend in the coming weeks.

A lot of the activity related to the “most dangerous” list was due to a malicious application outbreak on November 17.  The app enticed the user with “See the shocking video of the 1-year-old girl who CARRIES TWIN SISTER inside belly.”  To see the video, the user had to authorize the application.  Once authorized, the app proceeded to spam the user and possibly the user’s fan pages to propagate, or spread.

A point of interest is the inclusion of Mama Mary, a Facebook page dedicated to Mary, the Mother of Jesus.  We don’t usually see religious-centered pages enter into the Top 10.  This one seems to be an instance of collateral damage.  The same malware application spammed to most of the rest of the Top 10 ended up covering this page.
