2013 was no bore. Just in pop culture alone, we had about 500 (OK, maybe we’re exaggerating) celebrity baby births, including one of royal proportions, Kim Kardashian’s engagement, Miley Cyrus‘ VMAs stint, and we all learned how to do the Harlem Shake.
But while you can clearly see that pop culture was on a roll this year, many political decisions, heartbreaking tragedies, and technology advances occurred. Facebook, that little piece of essentialism that we’ve used as our diary to the world, rounded up the most talked about topics, figures, and most checked-in places in the U.S. and shared it in a year in review.
The list of the most talked about topics in the U.S. includes a broad range of news genres, including the Super Bowl, the government shutdown, the tragic Boston Marathon bombings, the Royal Baby, and ranking 12th on the list, Kim Kardashian.
Where did the citizens of the U.S use their check-in abilities most frequently? That would be the home of Mickey and Minnie Mouse—Disneyland. Times Square follows in second place, while Epcot in Florida won third.
Globally, the Royal Baby was the third most talked about topic—Prince George really made an impact.
