On The Today Show on NBC this morning, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg joined Savannah Guthrie to debrief Facebook’s biggest moments of 2014. Sandberg shared the global top 10 moments or events that generated the most buzz, along with the "most talked about" topics or stories.

“The most shared event in Facebook’s history... [was when] 350 million people came together around the World Cup," Sandberg said. "And I think this is social media at its best. At its very best, social media makes the world a little bit smaller, more of a community.”
