Facebook can tell us a number of things about the world around us, although sometimes those things blow up your news feed and take over your Internet experience. Whether it is the Kardashian family, including Kanye West doing or saying something ridiculous, or a political event or scandal that invokes conversation worldwide through the inter-webs, Facebook [and Twitter] usually becomes the hub of developing news stories where the public weighs in and decides which conversations turn into the talk of the day.

Facebook recently released its ‘Most Discussed Topics of 2015,’ and surprisingly the list has become slightly less like the lists of previous years. Check out the list below:

1) 2016 United States presidential election

2) Nov. 13 attacks in Paris

3) Syrian war and refugee crisis

4) Nepal earthquakes

5) Greek debt crisis

6) Marriage equality

7) Fight against the Islamic State group

8) Charlie Hebdo attack

9) Baltimore protests

10) Charleston shooting and Confederate flag debate

Do you notice anything?

Some may say yes, and some may say no. Your answer largely depends on whether or not you or anyone else for that matter,  considers you “awake.”

For those of us who do see it, or are awake, this list is a bit of a breath of fresh air as it continues a trend that has slowly increased over the last 3 years. What is the trend?

One of my favorite things to do is pick up on and analyze trends in the news media and/or events of the world. Trends can help you understand and even prepare for future events, as well as send you subtle alerts when these trends start to develop, depending on what it is we’re talking about of course.

Back in 2013 we saw a list released by Facebook that showed people were talking about some politics and world events, but we still saw a relatively high frequency of popular culture and celebrity stories trending. Stories in 2013 such as Miley Cyrus, the Super Bowl, and the Royal baby — all of which are, to be blunt, non-events. (Yes, we consider these non-events when World War 3 is on the horizon and the world’s economy is quickly crashing.)

In 2014 we saw a steady rise of the ‘world events’ related stories being talked about at a much higher frequency. Take a look below:

1) World Cup

2) Ebola virus outbreak

3) Elections in Brazil

4) Robin Williams

5) Ice Bucket Challenge

6) Conflict in Gaza

7) Malaysia Airlines

8) Super Bowl

9) Michael Brown/Ferguson

10) Sochi Winter Olympics

The good news? Well, quite frankly this means that young people are finally taking notice that the elite are drunk behind the wheel and speeding up, rather than slowing down. This means the world is collectively waking up, and is shouting “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore,” like a Howard Beale [Social] Network speech. The 2015 list gives us at the very least, for the first time, something we can point to and say, “we are waking people up!”

The moral of the story, though, is that the elite are slowly losing their power over humans on a vastly larger scale each year. All of their old tricks have long been exposed, and their new ones are becoming so much more quickly than in the past.

Let’s hope 2016 has many more positive headlines that trend worldwide on Facebook/Twitter that read something like, “End of the Federal Reserve.”

    We all share the responsibilities of this world. We can no longer stick our heads in the sand or someone will come along and kick what is still exposed.

  4.' Nathaniel Smith says:

    Everything on this list doesn’t prove they’re awake. It proves that the media blasts this shit constantly, they don’t even report local news anymore.
    I didn’t see anything on that list about the elite.
    Every post I scroll up on proves that there are many ignorant people, young and old that refuse to believe anything besides what they see on tv. The ones that think the president actually has a voice, the ones that say they’re perfectly fine with how their lives are. People don’t want to change the way they live, the way we think or the way we communicate with people…
    This page always stays on the edge of me wanting to keep it or not, posts allot of things I like, but I feel like whoever is running it holds back a lot…and that’s the stuff I want to read about!!
