New Facebook Map Shows What People Are Most Thankful For In Each State

The holidays are a great time to sit back, relax and think of all the things in your life that you are thankful for.

But because this is 2015, you obviously didn't keep all the things you're thankful for to yourself, you clearly shared all that gratefulness on social media.

Over the last few months, Facebook has been tracking all that good will to compile a list of the things users are most thankful for. Then, Facebook took it a step further and broke down that data by gender and by state.

In a statement, Facebook says, it tracked every "thankful challenge" on Facebook (where friends challenged friends to write down three things they are thankful for). The social networking site says,

One of the first things we discovered is that the people who participated in this challenge were overwhelmingly women: 90 percent of people who participated identified as female on their profile. There are a number of explanations for why this might be: women may be more likely to participate in challenges such as this; women may be more likely to nominate other women than men; women may be more willing to share what they are grateful for on Facebook; etc. To be clear, we think it is unlikely that women are actually more grateful than men.

I dunno, FB, I know a lot of ungrateful men out there.

So what are people most thankful for? Check out this chart:


Everyone on Facebook loves their friends and family. But, Facebook wasn't done at just one chart.

It also broke down state-by-state, which topics everyone was thankful for.


Way to go, California, being most thankful for YouTube, although, I guess that's not that much better than New York being thankful for their apartments.
