Facebook to add trending topics to website

Facebook is one of the leading social media platforms. It has now come up with another a new interesting feature called Trending box that will appear the top right side of the Facebook news stream page. It will highlight the links to popular stories on Facebook. Clicking on the trends will show what other people are saying about that particular trending topic.


The intention behind the introduction of trending topic is to let people talk about the trending topics discussed on Facebook as well as to keep the Facebook users informed about the news and events that are happening around the world.

The Facebook users can personalize the trending topics and can choose from various trends that the user thinks that is relevant to them. The users will get updates from those chosen trends and will see what's trending across Facebook overall.

The trending box feature is rolling out and is available to only few. But the feature that is available to few Facebook users are reporting positive feedbacks. The users who are exploring the new feature are saying that this new feature has enabled them to be updated towards news like celebrity, current news events and much more.

The trending topic was first introduced by Twitter and is not too surprising to see the feature on Facebook. But Facebook is one such social media platform where users are active 24x7; this will help them explore the trending news on the go. Besides that, Facebook is in process of testing the mobile version of this feature.

Facebook in some time will become one news source for current events! It will be useful for people to find every information at one place!
