Federer surpasses 10m Facebook fans

Federer selectively updates his Facebook page, like with this photo from Dubai.
Roger Federer won his fifth Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships this week, but that’s not the only success the Swiss achieved. During the tournament, Federer surpassed 10 million fans on his Facebook page. "I don't know if the 10 million are on live score or watching my match, but I definitely feel the great support by my followers and social network, and how they're into it," Federer said in Dubai.

"My website has been up and running since a long time. The fans have been really so supportive of me and are always present in the stadium and showing their colours and support."

Federer revealed his strategy with his account, selectively choosing when he publishes a status update, photo or video. "I try to be as good as I can with information, but I don't like to post too much sometimes," said Federer. "I like to do it when I think it's the right time. So far, there's not too many complaints. I guess you can always give more, but then it eventually maybe gets a bit silly if you post too much stuff."

Added the 30 year old, "I try to do what I feel is natural, and so far it's been fun. It's got to be fun for me and not a must otherwise I wouldn't be doing it."
