Facebook releases top status trends of 2010

Social networking giant Facebook has released the top status update trends for 2010, with HMU, World Cup and the iPad reaching the top 10.

The company said in a blog post that it wanted to track what users were talking about during the year, and found the “HMU” tag, (meaning “hit me up”), became one of the most popular phrases of the year.

“Whether looking for something to do or just getting off work, people began to add “HMU” to their status updates when they were ready to meet their friends. Standing for “hit me up,” the acronym was barely used last year but grew suddenly and steadily throughout 2010, especially during summer breaks and weekends.”

The announcement also comes after social network Twitter released its own list of the top 10 trending topics throughout the year.
