Each year, Google announce the most popular searches throughout the year and now Facebook wants to get a piece of that pie. Facebook looks through words posted in status updates from users in the USA, to determine “words of the year”.
1st place: Various Facebook applications, where words such as “MafiaWars” and “FarmVille” are found very often.
2nd place: “FML” which stands for “F*** My Life”. An expression often used by young Americans during exams, according to Facebook.
3rd place: Swine flu / H1N1 and similar.
The entire top 15 list can be found on the Facebook blog.
