It's that time of year. Twitter and Google have both released their year-in-review roundups this week. Now Facebook is doing the same.
On Wednesday, Facebook revealed the most talked-about events on the social network for 11 countries, including the U.S., U.K., Australia and France.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the single most talked about event in the U.S. was the presidential election, followed by the Super Bowl and the death of Whitney Houston, the last of which was a top trending topic in several other countries as well. Hurricane Sandy ranked fourth on the list in the U.S.
The London Olympics were the top trend in the U.K. and, somewhat amusingly, the book 50 Shades of Grey was the biggest trend on Facebook in Australia.
Facebook also listed out the most popular songs and checkins on the social network for each country, as well as the most popular memes, movies, most-read books and more for the U.S in particular.
The top song in the U.S. was "We Are Young" by Fun, the top check-in was Times Square in New York and the top three books were all from the Hunger Games series.
Aside from providing lists, the social network is also giving users the option to see a list of their 20 biggest moments of the year on Facebook.
