(Newser) – One of the consequences of losing a presidential election in the age of Facebook: You lose a lot of "likes," too. Mitt Romney has been getting "unliked" on Facebook at quite a quick clip, CNN reports. When the Washington Post took a look at his Facebook page Friday, he was losing 593 likes per hour. By Saturday, Mashable noted that it was up to 847 unlikes an hour. As of this morning, Romney was hemorrhaging about 11 likes per minute, according to CNN.

Of course, the former presidential contender still has more than 12 million fans on Facebook and more than 1.7 million Twitter followers—and it's not like he's been doing much to retain his fan base, having posted just one message since losing the election. Paul Ryan and the RNC have also been quiet on social media since Election Day.
