Australia’s Facebook Snapshot for 2017
International Women’s Day has taken out top spot as the most talked-about topic on Facebook in Australia for 2017.
About 15 million users of the social network logged on this year, according to Mia Garlick, Director of Policy for Australia & New Zealand.
Conversations by and about women on the social network eclipsed discussion over same-sex marriage in Australia, with The Woman’s March even making Facebook’s top ten global list, as well as the #metoo movement.
Coming in second was the race that stops the nation, but it didn’t stop us from searching, posting and talking the hell out of the Melbourne Cup.
“Placing third was same-sex marriage, as people from across the country shared opinions from both sides of the debate,”
“The fourth most discussed topic was Qantas, with the flying kangaroo sharing some big announcements, including the Dreamliner, as well as becoming an often-cited example about the role of corporate Australia in the same-sex marriage debate.”
Rounding out the top five was the death of Soundgarden frontman, Chris Cornell.
