07:45 PM ET 01.30 | Facebook and football. These are two things aren't typically paired with one another, but the influence they share is absolutely undeniable. When you think about it, they actually have the same roots and path to success: both started out as small time businesses that exploded into billion dollar empires -- Zuckerberg just managed to do it a lot faster. However when it comes to growing a market, both the NFL and Facebook are masters at using their powers together for the better good of everyone. According to a research study that gauged the NFL's influence on Facebook, 35 million people have liked one of the 32 official NFL team pages which means 1 in 10 Americans have pledged their loyalty to an NFL franchise by clicking a little "Like" button. But the real question is how many fans are becoming new fans of a given team due to Facebook?
