Marriage Equality referendum was Facebook's most discussed topic in 2015

Facebook has released its annual list of most discussed topics of the year and, perhaps unsurprisingly, the Marriage Equality took the top spot.

Not only was the Marriage Referendum the subject of lengthy discussion here, but it also broke into the Top 10 globally discussed topics. It features at number six on the global Top 10.

The Syrian Civil War and Refugee Crisis was second on the list in Ireland with St. Patrick’s Day popping up in third. Our fingers were tapping away about global issues too, including the UK General Election, the November 13th attacks in Paris, and the Greek debt crisis.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens also makes the list in 8th, though it could rise up the rankings after its release next week.

Facebook also released a video reviewing the year just gone.

As the year draws to a close, we remember what brought us together in 2015, and look forward the connections we'll make in 2016.
