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?

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).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the 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…

Social Media 101: How To Be The Most Hated Person In Singapore Instantly

It is amazing how we are quick to forget that a single wrong comment on social media can make one the most hated person in Singapore.

Back in 2012, we had Amy Cheong. Her comments on Facebook about a Malay wedding under her HDB void deck resulted in an online CSI that cost her her job.

Fast forward to 2017 and we have Thomas Chua Poh Heng and whose name will forever live in Internet infamy.

Thomas reposted a video of the funeral of a Traffic Policeman who died while on duty. Thomas then commented that his death was well deserve as Thomas was once given a traffic ticket by the same Traffic Policeman.

The screenshot showed that post was marked global by the Globe image next to the Singapore tag which could hint that this post was meant for all to see. As such, the argument of a "private"post does not hold any weight here.
