July 5, 2011 at 2:29 PM

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 5 (UPI) -- The No. 1 most-visited profile on Google+ is the head of a rival company, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Google+ Statistics said.

Zuckerberg, chief executive officer and founder of Facebook, has 21,213 followers on Google+, while Google founder and CEO Larry Page has 14,798 followers, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

The next two most-popular profile pages belong to Vic Gundrota, who is in charge of Google's social media initiatives, and Sergey Brin, a Google co-founder.

Although the head of a rival social Web site, Zuckerberg has attracted enormous media attention in the past several years, as Facebook has been forced into court with high-profile, big-money cases and the movie "The Social Network" winning an Academy Award.

Time Magazine also named Zuckerberg the person of the year for 2010.
