Game of Thrones was the most talked-about TV show on Facebook in 2015

It's that time of the year and by "that" I don't mean holiday season - rather, it's time for three straight weeks of year-end lists from publishers (guilty as charged), social networks, and you name it.

Facebook last week released its own year in review and Ed Sheeran was the most talked-about entertainer, Wars: The Force Awakens was the most talked-about movie, and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao were the most talked-about athletes.

For TV it was all about Game of Thrones, with The Walking Dead coming in second. Interestingly, The Walking Dead topped Nielsen Social's list for the most talked-about show on Twitter. Combined - the show is a social TV powerhouse.

Below, Facebook's most talked-about TV shows (globally) followed by a video the company produced highlighting the top stories driving the conversation in 2015:

As the year draws to a close, we remember what brought us together in 2015, and look forward the connections we'll make in 2016.
