Barack Obama: President of MySpace

Way to go Barack! Even without adding him to my list of friends, when I visit Barack's MySpace page I'm greeted with the message Barack Obama is in your extended network. And I currently have two friends, so that's saying something.

I just requested to be one of his friends, so that should put his most recent friend count at 80,012.

The graph and data for this information is hosted on, which looks like an interesting site in and of itself. If you are a data geek, it seems like it would be worth checking out.
