Facebook can tell us a number of things about the world around us, although sometimes those things blow up your news feed and take over your Internet experience. Whether it is the Kardashian family, including Kanye West doing or saying something ridiculous, or a political event or scandal that invokes conversation worldwide through the inter-webs, Facebook [and Twitter] usually becomes the hub of developing news stories where the public weighs in and decides which conversations turn into the talk of the day.

Facebook recently released its ‘Most Discussed Topics of 2015,’ and surprisingly the list has become slightly less like the lists of previous years. Check out the list below:

  1. 2016 United States presidential election
  2. Nov. 13 attacks in Paris
  3. Syrian war and refugee crisis
  4. Nepal earthquakes
  5. Greek debt crisis
  6. Marriage equality
  7. Fight against the Islamic State group
  8. Charlie Hebdo attack
  9. Baltimore protests
  10. Charleston shooting and Confederate flag debate

Do you notice anything?

Some may say yes, and some may say no. Your answer largely depends on whether or not you or anyone else for that matter,  considers you “awake.”

For those of us who do see it, or are awake, this list is a bit of a breath of fresh air as it continues a trend that has slowly increased over the last 3 years. What is the trend?

One of my favorite things to do is pick up on and analyze trends in the news media and/or events of the world. Trends can help you understand and even prepare for future events, as well as send you subtle alerts when these trends start to develop, depending on what it is we’re talking about of course.

Back in 2013 we saw a list released by Facebook that showed people were talking about some politics and world events, but we still saw a relatively high frequency of popular culture and celebrity stories trending. Stories in 2013 such as Miley Cyrus, the Super Bowl, and the Royal baby — all of which are, to be blunt, non-events. (Yes, we consider these non-events when World War 3 is on the horizon and the world’s economy is quickly crashing.)
