Facebook Confirms That People Really Love ‘Thrift Shop’ And ‘Ho Hey’
Allowing Facebook access to track what you’re listening to on Spotify, Rdio, YouTube and other integrated music apps has finally yielded some interesting information.

What they found is that Americans were listening to “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. A lot. Like, pretty much constantly.
