The rest of the top ten Facebook Live videos globally include four more that are related to the United States presidential election, cementing its status as the top trend on Facebook for 2016. Or maybe this year's barrage of major celebrity deaths has you feeling less than nostalgic.

The top 10 moments were measured by how frequently a topic was mentioned in Facebook posts made between January 1st and November 27th, 2016.

Pokemon Go, Pathankot attacks and the iPhone 7 launch claimed the last three spots on the list.

Given the amount of news Americans get through Facebook, there has been some speculation that the site is flooded by so-called "fake news".

This topic was followed by Pokemon Go, a game that became wildly popular as users around the world joined the search for the nearest Pokemon character. The political instability proved to be a struggle for the nation as it hosted the Olympics, the sixth most talked about topic on Facebook this year.

Getting into the bottom half of the top 10, we see the Olympics, Brexit, and the Super Bowl, followed by the passing of David Bowie and Muhammad Ali in ninth and tenth places. See the full release here.

Sticking with the politics theme a little closer to home, our very own Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull finished as the second most-talked about topic for the year among Australian Facebook users - for the second consecutive year.

It's at this time of the year when people will start to ask, "How to do the year in review 2016 on Facebook", although we would just like to say that please be careful.

With only a few weeks left in 2016, Facebook posted on its blog a year-end review of the most-discussed stories on its social media platform.
