While Bret Michaels remains in an intensive care unit following a major brain hemorrhage on Thursday, his fans are not only scouring the Web for news about the Poison frontman's condition, but are sending out messages of support on Facebook, Twitter and other social-networking sites.
"Praying every day for Bret to have a full recovery," wrote Heather Lynn on

In addition to the social-networking sites, Michaels' official Web site has become a hub for the dissemination of information. But at one point on Monday morning (April 26), as his name continued to be a top Internet search term, the site actually crashed as it struggled to keep up with all the clicks.
