Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and Bollywood heartthrob Shahrukh Khan are among the 100 most “obsessed-over people” on the web, according to a list compiled by Time magazine.

The list is topped by former US President George Bush who has a score of 65.6 points. His successor President Barack Obama comes in at the second spot with 45.3 points.

Tendulkar is ranked 68th of the list and has 23.98 points. Khan, however, comes in at the penultimate rank of 99 with a low score of 22.07.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is one rank above Khan with 22.08 points.

The list also includes singer Madonna on the number three spot followed by Beyonce (4), former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (11), Russian President Vladimir Putin (27), Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic (61), Pope Francis (70), Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher (77) and talk show host Oprah Winfrey (95).

The rankings was compiled drawing parallels from the magazine’s annual 100 most influential people in the world list.

The list was compiled by collecting data about the global leaders and celebrities online and from their Wikipedia pages.

Factors that were taken into account in compiling the rankings were number of links to other Wikipedia pages, number of external links, number of categories the person is in, total number of revisions to the page, number of unique individuals who have edited the page and number of anonymous edits.
