22 June 2016


Talks  about trending topics always be a complementary seasonings each of us raised the issue or phenomenon. Understand the meaning or not trending topic itself is not a question, that the principal what is more popular, crowded and noisy in talking about the people then that is the purpose of trending topics. Example question, such a case the governor of Jakarta, Ahok, whatever it does often become a trending topic on social media twitter, facebook.

The question arises curiosity, how social media determine a trending topic then thrown through the news feed in your account?  

To answer this thing was not too troublesome says the key lies in the algorithms, that almost all the sites whatever bersileweran in cyberspace has an algorithm alone, ranging labeled search engine (see: google, yahoo, bing) until labeled social networks such as facebook, twitter etc.

Determine trending topics

So you are not dizzy and interpret blindly, I demonstrated it, such as the governor of Jakarta, Ahok, often become a byword conversation on twitter, the algorithm indicates the volume of conversations about Ahok so high but wait this is not necessarily a trending topic.

The next process is performing a search on a topic that is busy talking about it with their compatibility, if relevant to the recent events taking place. 

Well, here is the key point, after quite sure that the topics are a winner if the tongue is appropriate netizen then operator control twitter, facebook gave his consent by writing a summary of related trending topics and then publish through news feeds in your own account.

So if I make conclusion, we can not conclude arbitrarily A topic was trending topic or not, because you are not algorithms designed specifically to capture conversations netizen.

About  the Trending Topics

At different points, it could be if it was minded rogue operator then actually trending topics can be engineered according to his own perspective.  

Because human intervention is still there and quite powerful. I am guessing this is proven, when the site theguardian.com released articles that reveal the dark side of driving trending topics by media facebook only based on 10 sources of news "facebook news selection is in hands of editors not algorithms, documents show".

Although later also in separate places, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been denied in his facebook account We have found no evidence that this report is true. If we find anything against our principles, you have my commitment that we will take additional steps to address it.

Until here, Still you to  believe trending topic? The answer of course is within each of us. But one thing is for sure, the existence of an algorithm into a keyword that leads toward the conclusion made trending topics.  

As for the deviation as revealed earlier, it works only persons who need pull the  little ears to reinforce the line of work that should be followed.
