Facebook is continuously following the footprints of Twitter. After adopting Hashtags, the social network will soon be rolling out Trending Topics feature, already present in Twitter.

Chris Struhar on Facebook Newsroom said, "the feature is designed to surface interesting and relevant conversations in order to help you discover the best content from all across Facebook".

The update will be rolled out to selected countries including India, UK, US, Canada, and Australia in the coming two weeks, which will be followed by a launch in other countries later. A launch on the mobile app is also expected soon.

The trending topics will appear on the top right corner of the Facebook Page and will be based on your interest as well as the topics making a wave across the social network in general. By clicking on the trending topics, you will be taken to the posts shared by your friends or the pages that are talking about the trending topic.

Ads to Soon Target Hashtags

It is also expected that Facebook will soon let the advertisers target the ads on the basis of hashtags that people are using in their updates.

    This is a good addition and one i will particularly find interesting since i can leverage such topics to improving my site traffic, engagement, content ideas etc. Every major Social network has a trending topic feature i don't see a reason why Facebook shouldn't. In fact its long overdue, they have the data, they have the technical know-how i just don't know why it took them this long to provide us with such feature. Thanks for sharing this awesome post with us at
