ABOUT THIS CHART: OneRiot has created a proprietary Trending Topic Engine that surfaces stories trending right now across Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and Digg. Advertising Age parses brand-related data collected by OneRiot over a one-week period, assigns a "spin" to each story based on the nature of the prevailing coverage, and selects a "key source" from among the news outlets whose links are being shared most widely on the social web.
