The end of the year 2013 is not too far from today and just like last year, Facebook listed the top trends of the year. At the end of every year, big sites like Google and Facebook recap the year by listing the Year in Review.

The Social Network has one of the biggest database of users and the data that comes from the users is significantly helpful. At individual level, Facebook creates a Year in Review page for its users where they can see the most happening updates from them. Facebook also lists the friends which interacted the most with you.

Conversations happening all over Facebook offer a unique snapshot of the world, and this year was no different. Every day, people post about the topics and milestones that are important to them – everything from announcing an engagement, to discussing breaking news, or even celebrating a favorite athlete or sports team.

Here are the top global trends of the year 2013.
