Social Data Quiz of the Year 2019

Let's see how much of this year you can remember, with the help of social media data

How are we knocking on the door of 2020? Seriously, 2019 has gone way too quickly.

To end the year on a high, I decided to look back at some of the most talked about events on social media in 2019 using Brandwatch Consumer Research and turned it into one of my favorite things – a quiz!

We’ve got everything from current events to sport and film, so get ready to test your memory on what’s been a very eventful year.

1. How iconic do you need to be to have the most likes on Instagram?

Kylie Jenner? Christiano Ronaldo? Ariana Grande?

The most liked photo on Instagram is owned by an egg.

2. What box office hit is represented in the following chart?

Can you remember what movie got all these people talking? It had over one million mentions on its release date.

Hint: this movie became the fifth film to gross $2 billion worldwide and is the highest-grossing film of all time.
