Facebook is shutting down the trending section from the desktop site after having it introduced in 2014. Now when you are browsing the Facebook page you can see a notification stating that the ‘Trending’ would soon be disabled. The trending feature was available in only 5 countries


In a separate blog, post-Facebook has mentioned the reason for their decision to discontinue this feature. Facebook reported that only 1.5% clicks go to the news publishers through the trending section, and Facebook users consumption behavior has also changed since it has become more mobile-centric and everybody consumes content on their mobile phones.
