Facebook: which content really popped in 2015

It seems that every year is a big year on Facebook. But 2015 was the most eventful so far for Mark Zuckerberg's ubiquitous social network.

So to celebrate, and possibly gloat, Facebook has released some key insights into what we really Liked last year.

Serious stuff

While the Facebook News Feed might seem overly represented with selfies and kitten videos, it turns out we prefer chatting about more serious matters. 

In 2015 the most talked about topics included the US Presidential Election, the November 13 Paris Attacks, the Syrian War and Refugee Crisis, and the Nepal Earthquake.

In fact, every conversation in the top ten was politically-related.

Location, location

Aside from talking politics, Facebookers just wanna have fun.

Disneyland Properties were the most popular locations in 2015, followed by Universal Studios, Times Square, and the Eiffel Tower.

Entertain me

Singer Ed Sheeran was the most talked about entertainer on Facebook last year, ahead of Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Nicky Jam and Wiz Khalifa.

Movie magic

It's not surprising to note that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the movie on everyone's lips in 2015.

A few light years behind came Fast and Furious 7, Jurassic World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

While Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and The Daily Show won Facebook's TV ratings battle for the year.
