Natural disasters and pop music had Facebook users talking, but this year: Get ready for a vocabulary lesson.

Yes, the number one Facebook status trend of the year goes to “HUM,” slang for “hit me up.” Facebook’s blog notes that the acronym was used only a few times a day in early 2009, but eventually snowballed to more than 80,000 mentions a day – perhaps proving once and for all the network’s stronghold on culture.
