Facebook unveils most discussed tech topics in Year in Review 2012
After Twitter rounded up the year, it is now Facebook’s turn to tell us what technology its more than a billion users talked most about.

While on Twitter, we saw AT&T and the iPhone 5 take over as the most discussed tech topics, on Facebook it’s a whole different story. Users were mostly speaking about Instagram and Timeline, and the newly launched Pinterest got a third place.

Actual devices only come at the fifth place with the Apple iPhone 5, followed by the Amazon Kindle Fire.

And here are the ten most discussed tech subjects on Facebook:

  1. Instagram 
  2. Timeline
  3. Pinterest
  4. Draw Something
  5. iPhone 5
  6. Kindle Fire
  7. SOPA
  8. News Feed
  9. Siri
  10. SongPop

To be honest, I join a lot of android fan page and talk a lot about the android stuff... Don't get me wrong, I just wanna learn more on tech and those fans care me a lot, I like it :) phonearena is great but pa alone is not enough for me tho... besides, human are born to learn, not to slack off around lol And yeah, instagram is popular on facebook not surprising, coz they are both owned by mr zuckerberg anyway lol

I'm sure this list is faked by FaceBook, they are still not too thick skinned to put their own name in the list. Google is the most popular tech company in the World and nothing from GG appear in this list. I guess this is b-c GG is the most hated rival of FB.

I love InstaGram because as they say......."a picture is worth a 1000 words" I have facebook and twitter pages like most of us, but you can take a picture of ANYTHING on InstaGram and watch the comments fly. Facebook and Twitter are ok, but reading statuses all day can get old. Instagram takes status updates a bit further. For example: Ive seen so many people comment on the Pacquiaco fight last weekend and the pictures I saw on InstaGram were some of the funniest things ive seen all year...........cant get that on Facebook or Twitter lol
