There are certain images, terms and phrases that resonate with just about anyone who spends enough time on the Internet, and the social network on which Americans spend the most time is as good a place as any to measure the hottest memes of the year.

Facebook did just that, releasing a list of the top 10 memes of 2012. Making the list were acronyms like "SMH" (shaking my head) and words that were hot this year, like "Linsanity."

In 2011, "LMS" (like my status) was the top meme, per AllThingsD; in 2010 it was "HMU" (hit me up). What was the top meme this year? Find it below, along with the nine other hottest Facebook memes of 2012.
