For some time now, Facebook has been testing a trending feature comprable to Twitter’s “Trending Topics”. Facebook announced Thursday that it will start rolling it out for users in the U.S., U.K., Canada, India and Australia. Since this is a roll out, this feature may not be available for all users. You will find the “Trending” feature on the top right corner of your Facebook News Feed, Facebook will show trending topics based on what type of popular conversations is happening throughout Facebook. Users can then click the topic to see public and friends’ posts about that topic.
