Cityville, Adele, McDonald’s, more on this week’s top 20 growing Facebook pages

Zynga’s CityVille topped our list of the fastest-growing Facebook pages by the number of Likes, with a few other games making the top 20. Because the social network removed app profile pages on Feb. 1, many game pages were consolidated and had large single-day spikes.

Popular musicians also made the list, as well as several big brands, including Facebook, and then there were movie and TV pages. Pages on our list this week grew from between 673,400 to 19.2 million Likes. We compile this list with our PageData tool, which tracks Page growth across Facebook.
