Facebook has released a new feature similar to one Twitter has offered for quite some time. A new trending box will appear on the top right side of your Facebook news stream page.
Facebook’s trending topics will highlight links to popular stories on Facebook. Clicking through to these topics will show you what other people are saying about it.
The new trending future is designed to get people talking about interesting things that are happening in the world, as well as to keep Facebook users informed of news and other trending topics. It is personalized to each user, so in addition to seeing topics based on things you’re interested in, you’ll also see what’s trending across Facebook overall.
Here are a couple of screenshots showing what the feature looks like:
