Facebook has recently been taking steps to allow more real-time conversation, on concerns that it may be losing appeal for young users.
A recent report from iStrategyLabs found that the number of U.S. teens 13 to 17 on Facebook had fallen 25.3 percent from its 2011 report, while that of users 55 and older had risen 80.4 percent.
Last week, Princeton did a study that stated Facebook's growth can be compared with that of an infectious disease—spreading quickly and dying suddenly. The study predicted that the number of Facebook users would drop by 80 percent between 2015 and 2017.

Soon after, Facebook addressed the report with a dismissive blog on its website.
The company also recently announced plans to add a feature called Trending in an effort to get users more involved in real-time conversations about events, similar to Twitter's Trending Topics.
Facebook's new algorithm will highlight subjects that have a sharp increase in popularity, allowing people to "find interesting and relevant conversations."
The company isn't offering any ad products around Trending now but most likely will, just as Twitter has with Promoted Trends.
