The app has begun testing “Top Trends Today” in the United States, according to a post by Mark Zuckerberg on Threads.

The feature will display topics being discussed by others in real-time and will appear in search and interspersed among posts in the “For You” summary of the app, according to Meta.

Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, said that the specific trends “will be determined by our AI systems based on what people are interacting with right now on Threads.”

Interestingly, the topics will include trends related to politics and elections. The company stated last week that it will no longer suggest political content in its recommendations unless users opt in. However, Meta confirmed that this restriction will not apply to its trending feature.

A Meta spokesperson told Engadget, “Political content can be a topic.” They added, “We won’t remove political topics unless they violate community guidelines or other integrity policies.”

Currently, “Top Trends Today” is just a “small test,” but Zuckerberg said the feature will roll out to more countries and languages “once we tune it.”
