The top 10 topics on Facebook and Twitter

The most popular topics are similar on both networks. Can you guess what they are?

The 10 most popular content topics on Facebook and Twitter are similar, but once you leave the top 10, topics differ significantly, a recent Klout study says.

The report was based on Klout Topics data from more than 580 million people around the world.

The analysis found that music and television rank as the No. 1 and No. 2 most popular topics, respectively, on both Facebook and Twitter. Content concerning celebrities, software, holidays, films and business is also extremely popular on both social networks.

Overall, 40 percent of topic interactions on Facebook and Twitter occur around the top 10 content areas. Engagement patterns look similar for each network.
