What is Trending?

Trending is the act of going viral. It can be a person, place, or thing that is very popular and appears on various social media sites. There are many ways to trend on any social media site; it could be a contest, a particular day of the week post, or using specific hashtags. The phenomenon will then be monitored so that people who see the trend can see it and also see the reason why it became as popular as it did. Depending on which one you use, there are different Trending types, and some have their own rules. The trends will be monitored using social media analytics.
