LMS, Layton, Sheen, Skrillex among top Canadian Facebook status updates in 2011

TORONTO – An obscure online acronym, an indie horror film, and a producer some music fans love to hate are among the more surprising topics popular with Canadian Facebook users in 2011.

Facebook’s list of the year’s most popular status updates was topped by LMS, which is short for “like my status.”

The acronym was followed by the late Jack Layton, the video game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3,” the death of Osama bin Laden and Charlie Sheen.

Coming in a number 6 was the independent horror film “Insidious,” which was a surprise hit after being released in April.

The political turmoil in Libya, the death of Amy Winehouse, Jersday – a reference to the reality show “Jersey Shore” – and Skrillex, who this year collaborated with metal band Korn, rounded out the top 10 list.

Facebook says it has 18 million active Canadian users per month, making Canada one of the biggest countries on the site on a per capita basis.
