The Fast and the Furious star created his fan page four years ago. He now has the most followers.

“So, when I had started my page, the only person that had a million fans was Barack Obama. Because it was first-quarter 2009, and he’d just got elected as President, because of social media. So, when I started talking to the fans, I became the No. 1 page in the world...over Coca-Cola, over huge companies,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “And it was only because I said: ‘Hi, guys, I love you.’”

The actor added personal touch to his social profile, which is the main reason why he is so adored by his fans.

“Facebook used to ask me to come up to their office to explain what the f**k I was doing, and why I had so many fans. What was unique was: I never let anyone do a post, I never let anyone post for me in the last four years. My audience knows me so well on the page that if my producing partner’s in the room when I post, they’ll know somebody was around me. That’s kind of cool, that’s how sophisticated they are,” he reportedly said. “Facebook really owes me billions of dollars, but whatever (laughs).”

We wonder what the social network’s reaction would be after Vin Diesel joked that Facebook owes him “billions of dollars.”
