Here are a couple of maps showing precisely where in the world Glenn Beck’s fans live, according to a study of Facebook data using Fan Page Analytics:
Check out the discussion to be found here of why Beck is so popular in Mongolia and elsewhere. I found the comment referenced by Chino Blanco, and the remarks made by Kuri to be especially helpful. But the whole conversation on Profxm’s post is quite interesting.
