Father’s Day on Facebook: dads, kids both love Family Guy, Dallas Cowboys


Sunday is Father’s Day, so Facebook took a look to find the ties that bind fathers with their children on Facebook.

Facebook found that fathers share many interests with their children, including The Hangover, Family Guy and Johnny Cash:

While fathers and their kids may feel like there is little overlap between their favorite musicians, athletes and movies, we took a look at Likes on Facebook and found that they may have more in common than they thought. This analysis of mutual Likes among self-identified fathers and their children on Facebook as compared with Likes among all people who use Facebook reveals what their shared interests look like across music, athletes, entertainment and more. Only children who are over age 18 in likely father-child relationships were considered.
