Facebook tests personalised trending feature

Source: The Drum

Facebook has launched a new trending feature which looks to ‘surface interesting and relevant conversations’.

The trending feature will be very similar to that which Twitter currently has, in that it will be personalised and based on what is trending on the platform overall.

According to a blog post by Facebook, a list of topics that have recently spiked in popularity will appear on the right hand side of the News Feed.

However, Facebook has tried to make the feature different to the trends on Twitter, adding: “Each topic is accompanied by a headline that briefly explains why it is trending. You can click on any headline to see the most interesting posts from your friends or pages that are talking about that particular topic.”

This isn’t the first time that Facebook has sought inspiration from Twitter for an update: In June 2013, Facebook launched clickable hash-tags.

Trending is currently rolling out on web in select countries and Facebook is going to continue to test on mobile.

More and more, people access the internet using devices other than a desktop computer. Smart phones, tablet devices, even smart televisions, all mean that guessing, let alone managing, how a user might access your website becomes tricky.

At Clarity Creation we strive to ensure our client’s websites market their businesses as effective as possible. The starting point for this is that the site can actually be viewed by the end user. Sites developed even a couple of years ago may not work effectively or at all across every device, that is why we are offering a FREE review service that will identify the problems your client’s may have viewing your website and what we can do about it.

If you would be interested in ensuring your website is seen by as many people as possible across a range of devices, then contact us by emailing [email protected] or call us on 0151 293 0505.
