Rob Ford was only the fifth most talked about topic on Facebook in 2013

Even though I can't load up my Facebook news feed without seeing a mention of Toronto's embattled-but-defiant, crack-using mayor, Rob Ford wasn't the year's most talked about topic among Canadian users. That "honour" went to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

As well, if you think your fellow sports and music fans at Rogers Arena spend too much time looking at their phones, you're right. Rogers Arena was the number one checked-in location on Facebook in 2013 that wasn't a bus stop or rapid-transit station.

Here's the Canadian highlights from Facebook's year in review.
