Facebook Introduces Newswire For Journalists


Facebook has just announced FB Newswire, a resource that will make it easier for journalists and newsrooms to find, share and embed newsworthy content from Facebook in the media they produce.

Powered by Storyful, a social news-verification company, FB Newswire aggregates newsworthy content shared publicly on Facebook by individuals and organizations across the world for journalists to use in their reporting. This will include original photos, videos and status updates posted by people on the front lines of major events like protests, elections and sporting events. FB Newswire is accessible on Facebook at Facebook.com/FBNewswire and on Twitter at @FBNewswire, and will be updated in real-time with content related to top news stories.

"Our goal is that the Newswire will be an invaluable tool for journalists, helping them to tell richer, more engaging stories using public content from Facebook," said Andy Mitchell, Facebook's director of news and global media partnerships.

The move is part of Facebook's effort to compete with rivals like Twitter and Reddit to be a "town square" of chatter during breaking news. In March, Reddit rolled out a new feature to let select users, nicknamed "reporters," post live updates.
