Hot twoppic of the week is Facebook Lite. All week twitter has been buzzing about the newer "lighter" version of Facebook. The company explained in a statement:  "Facebook Lite is a fast-loading, simplified version of Facebook that enables people to make comments, accept friend requests, write on people's walls, and look at photos and status updates.

The new site will be especially useful for those with a slow Internet connection, and Facebook hopes it generates more users worldwide.

Now time for a little Twitter 101

Today's topic?

Hash Tags

A hashtag is actually the pound symbol.

When you place it before a word and add it to a tweet, it acts as way to create categories for tweets that others can use as well.

For example, if a group is at meeting and tweeting their notes in real time, if everyone at that meeting added a hashtag such as hastagmeeting2009 to their tweets, everyone present or not can see and share all the notes in one place.

Hashtags could help spread information in a community, get news, promote events, and more -- So start tweeting!

Those are your hot twoppics on fox news radio.
