Throwback 2015: Facebook’s here that was…

As 2015 comes near to closure, Facebook is taking a journey through the year, touching some memorable moments.

Collectively the list highlights all the moments of the year when the world raised a voice; right from politics to sports and more.

  • The US presidential election was the most talked-about topic globally, with nearly a year to go to Election Day. The November 13 attacks in Paris, the Syrian civil war and refugee crisis, the Nepal earthquakes and the Greek debt crisis followed.
  • Ed Sheeran topped the list of most talked-about entertainers, followed by Taylor Swift at #2, Kanye West at #3, Nicky Jam at #4, and Wiz Khalifa rounding out the top 5.
  • Game of Thrones ruled the small screen as the most talked-about TV show, while Star Wars: The Force Awakens led the list of most talked-about movies.
  • Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao were the most talked-about athletes of the year following their highly watched fight in May.
  • Clash of Kings, a new RTS RPG multiplayer war game developed by ELEX, was Facebook’s Game of the Year, as it achieved chart-topping success on both web and mobile with more than 70 million players worldwide.
