By GizBot Bureau

    If you think love for someone or something is disappearing from online conversations, you are probably wrong.

    The study, conducted by marketingland.com, set out to look at the data behind more than 100 top brands in social media, Facebook Reactions usage, summer blockbusters, link headlines and Twitter profiles in Europe.

    The pattern that emerged on Twitter was that the word "love" was most frequently used to describe a user's passion around something -- music, sports team, travel -- and not necessarily as an amorous reference.

    Twitter users also mentioned their home cities with high frequency in every country in the study.

    A love of music made it to the top 10 in every country, with Germany at the top.

    The researchers found that links to a user's Instagram account appeared in the top 10 for every country, while Snapchat only appeared in French Twitter profiles (but came in at the No.1 spot).
