Facebook rolls out trending topics to website

In a move that echoes Twitter, Facebook will add trending topics to its website to let users know what other users are posting about at the moment, whether it’s the death of a world leader or the Golden Globe awards.

Users in the U.S., U.K., India, Canada and Australia will start to see a list of trending topics on the right side of their Facebook pages in coming weeks. The feature, which is not visible on the mobile version of Facebook, will be available in more countries at a later date.

Facebook said Thursday that the topics people see will be tailored to the user’s interests and location.
