Facebook released its "topics to watch" for February of 2018. The social media company uses these posts to show a list of rising topics based on mention volume on its network. Your brand can use these topics to curate your content to match rising trends and find new niches in the market.
Facebooks posts these topics with their corresponding month-over-month and year-over-year growth and demographic information. This month's topics include:
Calabazza: a winter squash that is a popular ingredient in many Mexican dishes.
Eucalyptus Globulus: like the name suggests, this is a Eucalyptus tree.
Hypoallergenic: a product that is supposed to not cause allergic reactions. For example, a hypoallergenic cat.
Isochronic Tones: otherwise known as binaural beats, these tones claim to put listeners into a different brain state after extended listening.
Smartdust: a network of microelectromechanical computers that work together across a network. Think deep learning and artificial intelligence.
Glitch Art: an art style that embraces design corruption. For example, broken computer monitors and other dystopian-esque, technology-focused art.
