Meta Testing ‘Trending Topics’ Feature On Threads
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerburg has announced that the company is testing a new “trending topics” feature on Threads that will allow users to see what kinds of conversations are trending on the platform.
The company is initially rolling out the test for users in the US and will roll out in more countries and languages once it is ready.
“Rolling out a small test of today’s top topics on Threads in the US. We’ll roll it out in more countries and languages once we get it tuned up,” Zuckerberg said in a Threads post.
According to Meta, the feature will uncover “timely topics that others are discussing” and will appear in search as well as between posts in the app’s For You feed.
“Today’s topics on Threads will be on the search page and in the For You feed. The topics are determined by our AI systems based on what people are engaging with right now on Threads,” Instagram head Adam Mosseri said.
