Superstorm Sandy has been this year's second 'most-talked-about' topic on Facebook, after the Super Bowl, a survey has showed.

According to data provided to the CNN by the social site, Sandy scored a peak of 8.34 on Facebook's "Talk Meter," which measures chatter about a news event on a scale of 1 to 10 when compared with a baseline.

So far in 2012, Sandy trails only the Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants, which earned an 8.62 in February, the report said.

'Frankenstorm' Sandy has inflicted worse-than-expected damages to the New York transit system, and several other major cities of the US northeast corridor, primarily -Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Boston. (ANI)
