Whether it's with glee or horror, political observers can now watch Mitt Romney's fall from social-media grace in real-time.

The former Republican presidential candidate has been bleeding likes since losing the US election last week, with users unliking Romney's Facebook page at a rate of 847 an hour.

Website DisappearingRomney.com details this loss in two graphs: "Recent Like Count For Mitt Romney" and "Realtime Like Count for Mitt Romney." The former indicates the overall downward trend, while the latter shows the decline as it happens.

Currently, Romney's Facebook page had just over 12,037,000 likes at the time of publication.
