A trend is the latest style of popular culture including but not limited to: clothing, music, vernacular (common speech), and the latest tv shows. This form of culture is usually expressed by preps and other kids trying desperately to be accepted by peers despite obvious outcastment.
The following are examples of current trend:

clothing : jeans with tears, rips, or holes; anything vintage washed; wearing 3 different style shirts at the same time - i.e. polo with tee shirt and button down.

music: pop on the radio consisting mostly of the latest rock band; currently R&B is quite popular among all.

Vernacular: yo, dude, man, tight, gank, grip, ricer

TV Shows: Laguna Beach, other reality shows,

"Trending" is a mutilation of the English language that means "currently popular." It derives from a sad misunderstanding of the verb "to trend" as meaning "to become a trend."

Twitter's "Trending Topics" list has probably contributed to this degeneration.
A: I said "Wikileaks is trending now" when I should have just said it was a popular news story. What's happening to me?!

B: The internet has ruined your mind. Reading pop culture on the internet is the worst thing you could do to your ability to communicate in plain English short of taking up a career in contract law. Hence "trending."
