Who are the Internet’s Greatest Power Couples?
Sorted by their average PeekScores — our at-a-glance means of determining an individual’s presence, influence, and activity in cyberspace — we’ve determined which celebrity couples are currently making the biggest dents and/or splashes on the Web. For our purposes here, and to inject a bit of drama, let’s call them The Internet’s Most Powerful Couples.
We have a statistical four-way tie for first place here, but there are discreet and subtle — and we do mean subtle — gradations to the PeekScore of 10; meaning that ever-so-slightly some are more “10″ than others when looking at the more granular numbers. With that in mind, the rankings do shake out in the order listed.
We can’t comment on the degrees to which these results mean these couples are happy, but we certainly do hope they are; particularly with it being Valentine’s Day and all.
The biggest surprise below may be that a certain Ms. Alamuddin-Clooney now brandishes a larger score than the man whose abandoned bachelorhood made her a household name not all that long ago. As she’s a woman of significant accomplishment beyond the man she happened to marry, we surely believe it’s deserved.
Clicking on the items below will lead you to the corresponding individual’s PeekYou profile from where you’ll be led to social pages, home pages, charity pages, photos, wedding photos, videos, music, and so much more of the very best of what the Internet holds of a life and career.
