Facebook's 'Trending' Feature Will Show Popular Topics

Facebook announced Thursday a new feature the social media company says will make finding popular conversations much, much easier.
The feature, dubbed Trending, organizes popular topics and stories to the right of your News Feed (without using hashtags). Facebook said on its blog Thursday the list is personalized and includes topics based on a user's interests.
Maybe one of the biggest ways the company attempts to set Trending apart from Twitter's Trending Topics list is through Facebook's accompanying headlines. Not everyone will know who Cristiano Ronaldo is or why he's trending, but with headlines the site seeks to make things clearer for users. (Via FIFA)
