Who Is The Most Popular Member Of One Direction – April 2013

Back in February, we did a little experiment to find out who is the most popular member of One Direction. And now a month and a half later we’ve decided to do it again to see if anything has changed.

Last time the final scores were: Harry 21, Niall 15, Louis 15, Zayn 15 and Liam 15!

So we’ll go through our usual little ‘tests’ again and see who comes out on top this time!

Who do you think it will be?

Round 1 – Twitter followers

One Direction book launch

Since last time each member has gained around 1 million followers, which for just over a month is pretty amazing. Harry still comes out on top with 12,031,994 followers with Nialler slowly catching him up on 10,722,199.

Then it is an incredibly close race for third. Louis has 8,860,965 while Liam has 9,829,035. So close Liam you’re almost there for that extra point!

Finally trailing way out the back is poor Zayn, who has over one million less followers than Liam at 8,636,964.

Poor Zayn.

So the scores for round 1 are: Harry 5, Niall 4, Louis 3, Liam 2 and Zayn 1.

 

Round 2 – Facebook ‘Likes’

1D happily walking along...

As we told you last time, each of the boys have their own facebook pages. And last time this category pulled out some pretty big shocks. So let’s see if its the same this time.

Once again Zayn wins this part of the test. He has 7,512,236 likes on his page, while his nearest rival Harry has over two million likes less at 5,501,130.

Again there is another close fight for third. But this time Liam just edges out Louis, with 3,920,131 likes compared to Louis’s 3,594,966.

This time it’s Niall who’s out the back with over a million fewer likes than Louis at 2,556,357. Go and make us happy guys and go and like Niall’s page we feel very sorry for him!

Round 2 scores: Zayn 5, Harry 4, Liam 3, Louis 2, Niall 1

So the overall scores are: Harry 9, Zayn 6, Liam 5, Louis 5, Niall 5.

All very close at the moment, and still there are three more rounds to go!

 

Round 3 – Google Trends

google-trends-april-2013

This is the round where we get our lovely little graph out again to see how many people have been searching for each of the members.

Last time we compared the results over the past year, but this time we’ve narrowed it down to a month so the results could be rather interesting.

So the blue line at the very top, and way out in front is good old Hazza. Lots of people searching for him maybe due to him splitting up with Taylor Swift, who knows?

Now second place is very close, we have the red line of Niall and the green line for Zayn. Throughout the month they have been incredibly close but it looks as though Zayn just pips Niall into second place.

And again the fight between fourth and fifth is close. Louis’s purple line just beats out Liam’s weird yellowy coloured line.

The round 3 scores are: Harry 5, Zayn 4, Niall 3, Louis 2, Liam 2

Which puts the overall scores at: Harry 14, Zayn 10, Niall 8, Louis 7 and Liam 6

 

 Round 4 – Google Fight

One Direction in a behind-the-scenes shoot for Red Nose Day

Here we put the boys up against each other to see who has the most articles on Google. It’s not very accurate but we love seeing the two stickmen fight it out.

So the results of this one are. Harry has a massive 37,800,000 articles which is way, way, way ahead of anyone else in the band and in second comes Niall, with 8,750,000.

Then it is incredibly close between the final three boys. Liam comes in third with 8,620,000. Zayn comes in fourth with 8,570,000 and Louis just finishing last with 8,520,000.

This round’s points are: Harry 5, Niall 4, Liam 3, Zayn 2 and Louis 1.

Leaving the scores at: Harry 19, Niall 12, Zayn 12, Liam 9 and Louis 8, going into the final round.

 

Round 5 – Forums

One Direction faces

So the final round we take into account the posts on our amazing forum – if you’re not signed up yet please do.

Anyway, on our amazing forum, we have different boards for each member of the band. We’ve taken into account how many topics and replies each member has.

So Harry is once again well out in front with 204 topics with 1038 posts in them. While Niall comes in second with 146 topics and 844 posts.

Louis scrapes third place with 130 topics with 669 replies and Zayn comes in fourth with 588 replies in 123 topics.

Liam comes in last with 436 replies in only 88 topics. Poor Liam.

The scores for this round are: Harry 5, Niall 4, Louis 3, Zayn 2 and Liam 1.

The final scores are: Harry 24, Niall 16, Zayn 14, Louis 11 and Liam 10.

Harry-rosso

SO HARRY WINS!! – AGAIN!!!

What do you think about our result?

There are ways you can change it for next time. Follow the boys on twitter and Facebook or post in our forum. There must be a way to knock Harry off the top somehow surely?

    Don’t really care love them all!!
    Favorite part was the alternate this is us trailer yaaa so excited!! :)))

  • Manal Deria

    Congraaats Hazza! & Zayn doesn’t have followers on Twitter cause he’s muslim and some directionators thinks he’s a terrorist. I know that feeling because i’m a muslim too. I love you guys no matter who wins or who loses I love 1D equally. <3 xx

    • bea bouma

      serious, are some directioners really don’t follow Zayn ONLY because he’s muslim?! I’m not a muslim but I don’t think muslims are all terrorist… some are, but some English and Americans too!

      • http://twitter.com/xxxmarie6 Pixiegirlxx

        thnx!

    • http://twitter.com/ZinaSym Zina mona

    • Hannah Tighe

      wth!!!!! he is so NOT a tarrotist!!!!

    • 1DGURL

      Ya I love 1D equally too! Another reason why I think zayn lost the twitter one is because he might’ve quit twitter for a while and the whole stupid “Courtney Webb” stuff

    • http://twitter.com/xxxmarie6 Pixiegirlxx

      well said SISTER!!

    • Ally

      who gives a crap that he’s muslim and did he say he was…?

  • bea bouma

  • http://www.facebook.com/HPsomsom1D Samah Ahmed

    no really?!

    well that’s no BIG surprise is it??

    and harry is the Hot-Topic for the media who thinks it’s Harry Direction =/

    i love harry with all my heart but i wish the media stop making it look like harry is the Leader or something!!

    and really?? most popular 1D member is just one more step to tear them apart :(

    why can’t we say that One Direction is a popular boyband and that’s it?
    we don’t care who is the most popular we will love them all forever we don’t need fb likes or twitter followers or stupid graphs to prove that :)

    • FabulousNails

      While i think people can support each 1D boy equally, you can’t force a feeling, Some people might genuinely love them equally, but I think it’s totally OK and human to have a preference.
      The press might think it’s going to tear them apart, but don’t the fans know that they seem like genuine friends and this would not tear them apart?

      What I really dislike [And the person I am replying to isn't doing that BTW] is some people in this fanbase trying to force their values on others and calling whoever isn’t agreeing with them “directionator” -which is quite funny considering it almost sounds like dictator, and they happen to be the ones dictating how one should think and behave…. This fanbase seems to love tearing itself apart. #sad

      • 1DGURL

        U always give good words of wisdom to keep us Directioners sane! :D

      • http://twitter.com/JeniTomlinson Jeni Tomlinson

        you keep us directioners sane very well written

    • lea rodriguez

      Well said :)

    • http://twitter.com/Nancylover1D DIRECTIONER

      That’s wat I always say and it’s right :D everyone in the media thinks Harry is the most popular but us as Directioners they r equal

    • Morganisawesome

      So true. No offence, I love harry with all my heart, but he is basically the “leader” mostly cuz of him and that b**** And they r in this together. Not a solo group with background peeps.

    • SexyCurlyHairedOneD

      You guys always know what to say I love Directioners like you guys your comments make my day:) and I love Harry too but I love them all with all my heart. One Direction is my life:)

    • http://twitter.com/ItsHannahJoy Teenage Kicks ♡

      I agreed with your words. I love Harry too but don’t make it like Harry is the only member of the band. Its too bad. But I love all of them.

    • maria

      I agree with u . I mean srsly !!!!
      Stop the whole crappy thing and get a life

    • niastyles

      Exactly

    • Brianna Fountain

      I agree very much with u it shouldn’t matter who has the most likes or followers or research on themselves, we still love them anyway because of their personality and who they are

    • Hazza

      You Indian?

    • mrs.malik04

      OMG YOU ARE SOO RIGHT!

    • http://twitter.com/JeniTomlinson Jeni Tomlinson

      you’re right

  • MinceAlorsla

    Harry might get the most media attention, but he also gets the most sh*t written about, people hating on him (saying he is ugly, a manwh*re or whatever), getting followed by paps. He doesn’t keep searching himself on google to up the stats either, so it’s not as if he is responsible for the situation.
    Just because he seems to be handling things well in the public eye doesn’t meant it’s always a easy IRL.

    I don’t think the other boys truly envy his place tbh, and I wish fans would see that instead of complaining about it.

    He is totally paying for this first place in the media!

    • http://twitter.com/JeniTomlinson Jeni Tomlinson

      totally right

  • Bethan

    I love One Direction and don’t hate any of them but I absolutely adore Louis

  • http://twitter.com/melanie_poon ★☆Perfect Niall★☆

  • Riya T

  • Rhiannon Tice

    Totes amazeballz Cg Cg hazza no wonder you won your so dreamy

  • Areli Acevedo

    I’m happy Harry won!! But it kinda gets me upset that people judge the boys too much especially to Zayn I don’t care if he’s Muslim…… He’s already perfect and people shouldnt judge him by his religion…

  • SexyCurlyHairedOneD

    Yay! I love you Hazza!!!!:)

  • Genesis Horan

  • http://www.facebook.com/brianka.williams Brianka Williams

    There should reall not be any fav. If ur a True Directioner no body even realizes when something big happens to the other boys like when they had their red nose day and Louis hair was red she said nothing bout it and all her que. were addressed to Harry none to the other 4 like seriously when are u guys gonna realize that harry isn’t the only member in onedirection what if the other 4 weren’t even there then what would it be noting exactly becaus the other 4 make up onedirection not just Harry yes I do love Harry but hear me out get this through your heads HARRY ISN’T THE ONLY MEMBER U NEED TO REALIZE THAT THER ARE 4 OTHER MEMEMBERS

    • http://www.facebook.com/brianka.williams Brianka Williams

      HOW DO U TJINK THE OTHER BOUS FEEL JUST TAKE THAT IN CONSIDERATION

  • http://twitter.com/KaylaTomlinso14 Kayla Tomlinson

    Really thats really not right because of the fact they can turn on each other just like that because one has the most followers and I myself dont think all the directioners would like them to split up

  • Sarah payne

    I love them all and i don car who wins but congragulations harry

  • FOLLOW LIMIT

    Liam Is First for Me I Love him So Much!! Ms.Payne ♥♥

    • LiamPayneLover

      U took the words rite outta my mouth :)

  • Sandra Yvette Guerrero

    call me a hater, or whatever you want, but i dont think harry should have won .-. i mean ya hes handsome, but how bout something else for a change? :c

  • http://twitter.com/1mujuru XxlillyXx

    I’m fine with Harry on the top i’m fine with any
    of them on the top I love them all equaly

  • Fani Malik

    I thought Zayn should’ve win!!

    • maria rodriguez

      i know right he is so sexy and so hot and even more sexy

  • Jollyjumper8

    I dont like the idea of doing this… If Liam saw this he would probably start to feel bad about himself. Put yourself in Liam’s shoes, if you saw this, you wouldn’t feel so good, would you? Please dont do these sorta things again. It’s not fair to the boys.

  • Sarah Rodriguez

    I thin that Harry was a very good winner!!! He is perfect to me!!! And all his little things!! Lol

  • disqus_uLWQva9TKL

    THEY ARE ALL THE MOST POPULAR IN MY BOOK !!! #Directioner4Life

    Wow not surprising though like every body likes him though he isn’t my favorite I still like him but I would go for Niall

  • Nalani Ferguson

    Harry’s anazing and there are soo many great things about him and his personality and thats why he won and also why I love him along with the felow directioners

  • http://twitter.com/1DRAWKKS FollowMeLZLNH

    Tbh i dont like this “best member thing” like we love our five boys and nothing would change that. And to the people saying zayn is a “terrorist” he is not and he doesn’t tweet alot. The boys are very busy so dont expect them to tweet every hour or something.

  • Hazza<3

    I love ALL of them<3<3<3 But Harry and Louis are my favorites<3

  • shana

    Harry is really popular so i expected that

  • Hazza

    Please can someone tell the boys Facebook page! :( I NEED to like their page immediately! :(

  • ChloeStyles

    I don’t think the boys appreciate everyone choosing the most popular and all… cuz the boys get sad…

    for example, once, the interviewer once brought up that the dolls are all sold out except for the Harry dolls and he got pretty upset…

    Why can’t we just go with One Direction and don’t do these… most popular stuff…
    They are all best friends, brothers, lads, we shouldn’t try to choose one over another and stuff..

    just sayin’

    I guess it is also because Harry is single. Girls have more high hopes for him and Niall. THEY’RE BOTH SINGLE.
