    On Twitter, there is an automatic trending window running on the left, which is modifiable.

    Impressive list, but could you give us a quick overview of how each of these sites help create buzz or learn what's currently trending?

    This is something new for me as a knowledge.

    Twitter has its own trending app running on the left side. Does that also count in as a trend engine..?

    I have not had the chance to test them out yet, but they all have a free trial, so it's possible to test them and see them for yourselves. If only I had the hands on experience to give better advice, I hope the list helps in either respects.

    I usually stick to Twitter's trending topics, but I like a more personable feel to what's currently popular. This is why I tend to leave my main source of to-the-second news and links to be Reddit.

    Google Insights, which I believe is now "Google Trends" provides a good, although small, snapshot as well.

    Are there tools which can also monitor the top trending topics on Google and Yahoo? That would be cool.

    Google Adwords shows the number of searches during the last period of time, for a keyword you are interested in. Also, you can select statistics sorted by the separate country and language here

    Google adwords? I thought that's only for advertising purposes or whatever. Is it that or the Google keyword tool? I'll go check more about that. Maybe it covers everything. Thanks, by the way.

    Or you could just use google, for example type pinterest statistics and you will find this:http://www.repinly.com/stats.aspx
    You can try this with other social networks.

    I think Twitter is very easy to use , you can search the latest topics by going twitter home page and discover the search pages on the web. You can click any trends in the sidebar takes you to the twitter search results for that trend.
