Amazingly, Rob Ford Wasn't Canada's Most-discussed Topic on Facebook This Year

According to Facebook, Canada is one of the world's most engaged countries in the realm of social media. Our nation of a modest 35 million boasts 19 million active Facebook users—an impressive penetration rate of 54%.

Facebook's annual Year in Review reveals what these highly engaged Canadians discussed most in 2013: apparently, it was the Maple Leafs, Toronto's somewhat resurging National Hockey League team.



In second was the infamous Harlem Shake, followed by the even more infamous Miley Cyrus Twerk in third. Canada's most recently minted laughing stock, Toronto mayor Rob Ford, only made fifth.

The venue that Canadians checked into the most on Facebook (excluding transportation hubs) was Rogers Arena, the stadium of the Vancouver Canucks. Other popular destinations in Canada include the incredibly obvious: West Edmonton Mall, Niagra Falls, and Air Canada Centre.

All in all, a seemingly boring year for Canadians in Canada. Step it up next year!
