In addition, you may see or hear Trending word in other media sites particularly on Twitter. Twitter's trending is different from this new feature because in Twitter it is accompanied by hashtag (Advertisers could promote it) that could be seen in the left side of its dashboard.

Facebook is using an algorithm to determine which topics are most well-recognized or sharp increase in popularity.

The company said also that it is not necessarily the posts within a large volume about a particular subject. These subjects that are always most popular on Facebook won't always become trending, depending on the spike in mentions.
