What did everyone “like” on Facebook in 2011? Well, it seems that in addition to everything from “Harry Potter” to Megan Fox, Rihanna also ruled the roost on Facebook’s Memology 2011 report.
Rihanna not only topped the list of musicians, she also had the Most Listened To Song thanks to her chart-topping “We Found Love,” the Calvin Harris-produced Talk That Talk track. The singer is also joined on the list by Bob Marley, Avril Lavigne, David Guetta, Enrique Iglesias, Usher, Lady Gaga, Metallica, Green Day and the Black Eyed Peas.
In addition to “We Found Love,” people also grooved to Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO, “Titanium” by Guetta and Sia, Skrillex’s “First of the Year” and “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites,” the Usher and Guetta track “Without You,” “Stereo Hearts” by Gym Class Heroes (featuring Adam Levine), Foster the People’s breakthrough hit “Pumped Up Kicks” and “Someone Like You” by Adele.

Movies and TV also had Facebook users talking. “Harry Potter” topped the movies list, followed by flicks like “The Twilight Saga,” “Toy Story,” “Avatar,” and “Jackass.”
