Tim Geithner is less popular than Jell-o on Facebook


Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who has struggled to win over Wall Street, is having an equally difficult time making new "friends" on Facebook.

Geithner's page, which a Treasury spokesman could not immediately confirm was legitimate, lists 718 fans. That's less than the 1,228 people who have told the hugely popular Web site that they like Jell-o, the 5,674 people who back Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, the 22,426 fans of Budweiser and the 28,739 fans of Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange.

Nonetheless, there are Geithner groupies.
