If you're having trouble finishing your NCAA tournament bracket, you could turn to the largest social network in the world or the leader of the free world for help.

Facebook mined all the posts and comments about all the teams in the field and filled out a bracket based on which teams garnered the most attention. Facebook's Final Four is Kentucky, Louisville, Ohio St., and Duke, with UK playing Duke for the title.

According to number of mentions, Kentucky is crowned national champion.

Admittedly, this isn't a very good way to make tournament picks. People could be talking a lot about a team, but that doesn't mean they're going to win. But in the case of Kentucky, it doesn't seem like a bad bet.

Over in the oval office, President Obama has completed his bracket as well. His Final Four looks a bit different, with Kentucky, Duke, Villanova, and Arizona advancing. Obama has UK facing Nova in the finals, with UK coming out on top.

We wouldn't exactly call this a bold prediction, but Obama isn't known for his bold tournament picks. You kind of have to be diplomatic when you're the President – can't go knocking out a #1 seed in the second round or anything.
