Facebook, being the largest social media network has confirmed that they are working on a new "Featured Topic" for the users to make the application more friendly. 

The company is always making constant efforts for the users who spend most of their time on the site. Particularly, the "Featured Topic" will conceptualize the area of interest of the user and show the related topics for a better read. Each selected item includes a couple of texts on the subject line, a link to the news story and a photo. Facebook confirmed to the news and said that it will be designed for the betterment of the readers to find relevant articles.

Facebook is always in the constant process to bring something new for the users which had also added new reactions for the share which showcased love, anger, sadness and a wow factor to the shared post and the "Live Story" feature which was appreciated by the users. Most of the news which a person gets to know is through the social networking sites where Facebook plays a major role. 

So, keeping these things in mind the company is testing the "Featured Topic" which will provide the area of interest to the users. The user can look up to the "Featured Topic" for the news he wants. 

Facebook news feeds which includes items posted by user's friends and family   - displayed in an order according to Facebook algorithms - as well as ads and post from the outlets that a user likes. Many media companies provide their subscriber with a list of stories that correspond to the readers interest based on their use of the site.

Although presenting new stories have been tricky for the Facebook. After Facebook changed its procedure behind the "Trending Topic" in May, 2016 the news report alleged that the company had suppressed conservative news and the Republican U.S. senator demanded more transparency. After that, Facebook bought many changes in December, 2016 after the false news spread out of last year's U.S. presidential election.
