As 2014 comes to a close, Facebook wants us to take a look back at the people, the places and the events that defined our year. The popular social network has put together a Year in Review site with a series of fascinating top 10 lists, from the TV shows that kept us glued to our couches to the songs that never seemed to leave the radio.

It’s worth combing through the site to see who and what we couldn’t stop talking about throughout the year, but these are the 10 topics that dominated Facebook this year:

  1. Ebola Virus Outbreak
  2. Ice Bucket Challenge
  3. Robin Williams
  4. Super Bowl
  5. Michael Brown & Ferguson
  6. World Cup
  7. Conflict in Gaza
  8. Midterm Elections
  9. Malaysia Airlines
  10. ISIS

As you might expect, our list of top 10 topics consists of a healthy mix of human triumph and tragedy, from events that brought the world together to those that threatened to tear it apart at the seams. It was a long year, but we’ll have a whole new one to leave our mark on before you know it.

Once you’ve checked out all of the top 10 lists, be sure to watch the video Facebook published last week:
