Coca-Cola is one of those instantly recognisable brands that would rake in fans and followers without even trying, so it’s to its credit that it has active account across the social web.

Coca-Cola has attracted 63 million fans to its main Facebook page, which isn’t that surprising as it’s one of the most recognisable brands in the world.
