Starcount shows Xiaxue is not the No 1 Blogger in Singapore

Xiaxue maybe the perceived blogger queen in Singapore, it turned out that she may not be the No 1 Blogger in Singapore.

According to Starcount, a new web service that charts popularity of brands, websites, bloggers, etc on social media, the title of No 1 Blogger in Singapore goes to Merry Rina.

Starcount ranks social media stars, brands, and the likes based on their quantitative results from social networks. 

Though Xiaxue has more Facebook fans then Merry Rina (97,806 vs 52,622), Merry Rina has more followers on Twitter (398,592 vs 106,706). 

However, Xiaxue does edge out Merry Rina in Youtube views as the latter does not have a Youtube account. 

As such, Merry Rina Tweeter followers gives her the edge over Xiaxue. 

It is indeed a numbers game. 

Starcount is releasing the first phrase of its campaign where it looks to get web visitors to get discover the site and other unknowns from its charts.

For example, did you know that Leon Jay Williams is the All time most popular Singapore celebrity in social media beating Mediacorp actress Fann Wong.

In the prelaunch for bloggers, Starcount announced that it is going to launch the Social Star Awards, to be held in Singapore, which the organisers will want it to be the "Oscars" of social media. 

Unlike the Oscars, the Social Star awards will be judged by fans.

In addition, the most popular fan will be given a chance to fly over to Singapore to hand over the award to the most popular celebrity.

For example, if Lady Gaga was awarded the most popular celebrity in social media, her top fan would be handing her the award. 

Head over to Starcount and start building your own popularity charts in social media. 

Will you be surprised by the results or discover new mentions in social media that will interest you?

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to.
