In a recent post by Eyewitness News, Facebook recorded every aspect of 2015 and takes into account how frequently topics are mentioned in Facebook posts from the first of January to the first of December.
Just as in 2014 our president Jacob Zuma, is dominating Social Media in South Africa yet again. JZ got a massive boost recently over his firing the much-loved finance minister Nhlanhla Nene followed by the Rugby World Cup and electricity crisis.
Second place is followed quickly by the Rugby World Cup, again helped by a shock loss to Japan, The continuing electricity crisis takes us to third on our list.
The Nkandla scandal as to be expected snuck in at number five and the looming US presidential election is the number one topic globally followed by last month’s Paris terror attacks.
With 2016 knocking on our door time will tell what next year has in store of us, considering the current financial situation and local elections coming up the political landscape is set to surge ahead with its social media dominance.
