EAST HANOVER, N.J. — It seems that Facebook users love Oreo.
Kraft Foods on Wednesday said that its cookie brand set a Guinness World Record with the most "likes" on a Facebook post in 24 hours. The Oreo Facebook community of 16 million fans from around the world was invited to "like" a post that read, "'Like' this post to join other Oreo fans around the world in setting a Guinness World Record for most 'likes' to a post in 24 hours. Oreo is the world's favorite cookie, and with your help, it will be the most 'liked.'"
Fans around the world tallied a total of 114,619 "likes," Kraft Foods said.
"Oreo has been bringing families together for nearly 100 years," said John Ghingo, senior director of Oreo global growth platforms for Kraft Foods. "We're so proud of our fans who came together to make this momentous first happen. So while our reign as record-holder may be short but delectably sweet, like Oreo cookies, we proudly accept the record on behalf of our fans across the globe."
