Facebook lets news organizations broadcast your trending topic discussions

Anyone else think that Twitter's love affair with TV has gotten those down in Menlo Park a little scared? Facebook has announced that broadcasters like CNN, NBC and Sky can now gain direct access to your public wall posts concerning trending topics and embed them in their shows. That means that your insightful or controversial opinions on Shark Week might be sharing screen time with Al Roker without your explicit say-so. News organizations will also be able to generate real-time infographics to gauge the state of the nation and show, to an unprecedented level of detail, just how many of you care about twerking at any one time.
