DENVER — Hate Facebook all you want, but there’s no better barometer for what people are talking about online. From sports to politics to news, the social network remains a major factor in how many — maybe even most — people in this country and around the world get and share information.

From the silly to the tragic, maybe this is the perfect way to reflect in the age of trending topics — a new emotion every two seconds.
