Facebook Status Updates for 2011:Top 10 Popular Trends

Facebook tonight released a wealth of data about 2011s most shared content, both globally and for specific countries. Across the world, Osama Bin Laden’s death was the most popular status update topic, followed by the Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowl win and the Casey Anthony trial. 

When compared with the top spiking tweets of the year, differences between Twitter and Facebook become clear. Twitter’s real-time focus led entertainment awards shows, natural disasters, and sports to dominate, while Facebook’s discussion capabilities led world news and celebrity deaths to trend there.
