New Delhi: Facebook has rolled out its version of trending topics on a widespread basis. It is now available in India but only to few users. The new feature replicates Twitter's popular model of finding the most popular topics on the website.
 
The top three trending topics on Facebook India right now are Microsoft's Q4 earnings, Rafael Nadal beating Roger Federer in the Australian Open final, and Justin Bieber getting out of jail.

The list, called Trending, will appear near the top of the right-hand column of the news feed for desktop users.

The world's largest social network, with 1.2 billion users worldwide, said that everyone in the United States, Canada, Britain, India and Australia should be seeing the feature on Facebook.com in the next two weeks. Other countries — and the company's mobile apps — will get the service later.
