What does 'Analyzing searches and social updates' actually mean?
Every moment of every day, people are searching, sharing, tweeting and posting content. It's hard for people to know what others are really talking about; so every few minutes we look back at the last 24 hours to tally, sort and analyze millions of Bing searches and social updates. We sift through all this data, toss out the boring, the lame, the uninteresting -- and then look for patterns to emerge. Our advanced technology detects breaking trends as they happen in real time -- so you'll find stories on msnNOW that you'll find nowhere else. Sure, we'll cover some big stories, but with a unique social angle. We think this new blend of algorithms and editorial is the perfect way to find the stories that matter now.

What is Biggest Movers?
Biggest Movers displays keywords that are trending. The results are determined by a computer algorithm, displayed automatically and not filtered. At times, hoaxes, rumors and false information trend on the Internet. Biggest Movers still shows you this information because it is trending online. It does not identify or filter out the false information. The results are updated every five minutes, so you can click the arrows to look back over the past two hours and see how trends change.
