Guinness World Record for Facebook comments now 1 million

By Emil Protalinski | February 10, 2012, 3:17pm PST

Summary: The record for the number of comments on a single Facebook item is 1,001,552. It is almost double the previous record and was set over the course of three months.

A new record has been set for the most comments on a single Facebook item: over 1 million responses. On October 30, 2011, Tracey Hodgson of the U.K. made a post on the Facebook Page for the Zynga freemium game FFG Pioneers. By January 31 (three months later), the post had accumulated 1,001,552 comments.

The comments kept coming, but 1,001,552 is the number that the Guinness World Records (GWR) approved, so that?s the new record. Curiously though, the post and its comments are no longer on the Facebook Page. Thankfully, GWR got a screenshot (pictured above).

The record was achieved by less than 107 Facebook users (that?s the number of Likes the Page had at the time the record was set). Even if every one of those users did participate, it means they each made an average of 9360 comments. The 1 million figure almost doubles the previous record set for a post by Roberto Esposito of Italy last year.
