Here Are the Top 100 Things Facebook Thinks You Care About

Raise your hand if you have an oversharing college acquaintance/childhood friend/sister-in-law. No, you don’t always want to know about how your friend’s kid’s potty training is going, but even if you’re not guilty of posting TMI Facebook statuses, you’re often still handing over a lot of personal info on social media networks (and there’s an app in development that’s geared to stop some of that).

To say that Facebook has a lot of dirt on their users is an understatement. While protecting sensitive info on FB is super important, some data that the tech company gathers on you is just that: data — like whether you’re more of a Justin Bieber or Harry Styles fan or if you’re an iPhone or Android user. That data can actually assist publishers (like us! Hi.) in creating content that you’d actually be interested in.

Recently, the social media network released a goldmine of info via their Audience Optimization tool, which is, according to Facebook, “an organic targeting tool to help publishers reach and engage their audiences on Facebook and better understand the interests of people clicking on their posts.” The entire list of things that Facebook believes you, the audience, care about is 282,000 items long, but we’ve shortened it juuuust a tad. Here are the top 100 along with the total audience size for that interest.
