Top Trenders: Facebook Cracking Down on Gun Sales

A new policy plans to block minors from seeing gun sale postings, among other changes.
Here are your Top Trenders for Friday, March 7th!

NUMBER 5 - NATIONAL CEREAL DAY
Today is National Cereal Day! So as you dig into your bowl of Corn Flakes, Cheerios or Cap'n Crunch, here are a few fun facts: Dr. James Caleb Jackson is credited with creating the first cold breakfast cereal in the 1800's. It had to be soaked in milk overnight before it was edible. Corn Flakes were accidentally invented when the Kellogg brothers messed up a batch of granola.

NUMBER 4 - BIEBER FAN BREAKS INTO POP STAR'S HOME
One of Justin Bieber's Twitter followers got a little too comfortable at the singer's Atlanta home. Police say Qianying Zhao showed up at the house when no one was home, went through an unlocked door, and then went to sleep in one of the beds! When confronted, she said she was one of Bieber's friends and was there for his birthday party. That's when police were called. She was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing.

NUMBER 3 - THE ANTI-BARBIE
Move over, Barbie. A Pittsburgh man has created a doll that he says looks more like the average 19-year-old American woman. Using data from the Centers for Disease Control website, Nickolay Lamm made a 3D image of a doll. She's shorter and broader, with a smaller head and thicker neck than Barbie, wearing minimal makeup. The plan is to now move from prototype to production by next Christmas.

NUMBER 2 - FACEBOOK CRACKS DOWN ON GUN SALES
Facebook is cracking down on guns. A new policy plans to block minors from seeing gun sale postings. The social media site will also pull posts of sales that don't require a background check. Until now, Facebook only regulated paid ads. But in the next few weeks, the site will delete gun sale posts flagged by users. Facebook is taking similar steps with its photo-based site Instagram.

NUMBER 1 - UKRAINE CRISIS LATEST
Western leaders are sitting idle, waiting for a resolution to the tensions in Crimea, Ukraine. The United States, Canada, and the European Union have all taken steps in support of Ukraine's interim government. President Barack Obama spent an hour on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday, stressing the U.S. position on Ukraine. Meanwhile, the U.S. House approved a $1 billion financial aid package for Ukraine by an overwhelming vote.
