AN UNLIKELY KING of Google+ has emerged, the people-liking Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

We covered the news that he had joined the immature social networker last week, whether that was true or not, and now we learn that he is its most popular user, despite not really having done anything there yet.

In a list of Google+'s most popular users Zuckerberg sits atop the competition and even beats Googlers' Sergey Brin and Larry Page for followers.

Young Zuckerberg has 21,213 followers and some 39 friends, while Page has 14,798 followers and no friends. Vic Gundotra, Google SVP of social networking, is in third place with 13,783, but no friends, and Brin, in fourth has 11,629, and again, no friends.

Robert Scoble, otherwise known as the Scobleizer, is at fifth place, and while he has fewer followers, though by not many, he does have the most friends at 2,944.

The list does include some other social networking and blogging heavyweights, including Kevin Rose, of Digg fame, and Twitter's Evan Williams, both of whom feature much lower down on the list of popular users. µ
