Facebook has been working on its highly anticipated search feature, launched recently to users, and this time the company has started off with another experiment called Trending Topics. It will show the hottest topic going around in networks in a Timeline card that will be shown in the newsfeed of users. The feature comes inline with Twitter’s ability to seize on trends.
The social networking giant has restricted the launch of the same to a very small number of users those are using the mobile version of the website right now but the company hopes to launch the same in another short span of time. Accordingly, the Timeline cards will be able visible to all users along with public comments and posts, whether or not the contributors are friends. Facebook also has launched its much waited search feature called the Graph Search to users globally in US English mode. Earlier the search feature was launched only to users in the US after months of restricted user testing. The feature makes it easier for users to make new connections by searching for friends and pages by names or simple phrases to find something specific across people, photos, places, interests and more.
About the launch, this is what Facebook has to say, “As of today, Graph Search has been launched to everyone using Facebook in US English. Graph Search appears as a larger search bar at the top of the page.”
