With the 2015 Facebook 'Year in Review' being published recently, the social media giant has announced that the 2016 American presidential election has been the most discussed topic over the last 11-12 months.




With one of the biggest posts about this topic being Hillary Clinton announcing her candidacy, one single Facebook post alone by her drew in just under 80,000 likes, 10,500 comments and 41,289 shares. This was followed by Donald Trump's tax plan press conference, drawing 54,000 likes, 22,000 comments and 17,000 shares.


There's no denying that many different individuals have taken to Facebook in order to express their opinions and often engage in heated debate about the election to come, with the statistics showing that maybe its something the globe cares about more than other things. While its interesting to point out how much reach Clinton and Trump both have, they're still tiny compared to copious meme and pop culture Facebook pages.
