New Trending Topics
Do you have the new Facebook trending topics feature on the desktop version of the site yet?
Mobile users have had trending topics pop up off and on but now desktop users have a new Trending topics item in their right hand sidebar.
According to PC Magazine:
“Desktop users in the U.S., U.K., Canada, India, and Australia will begin seeing the new Trending box on the top right side of the homepage. “
“Only those posts that have been shared by friends or made Public will appear on the page.”
“The list is personalized, including topics based on things you’re interested in and what is trending across Facebook overall,” Chris Struhar, a Facebook engineering manager, said in a statement.
Overall, I’ve not seen much evidence of them being “things I’m interested in” – but they definitely are things my Facebook friends are sharing. So their relevance to me is perhaps based on my friends interests being similar to my own.
Has this shown up for you yet? What do you think of it?
