Facebook Inc (FB) partners with Storyful on FB Newswire project

Posted Apr 24, 2014

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has announced a new feature to appeal to journalists. Facebook and Storyful announced a partnership to launch Newswire.

Newswire is a curated page that has newsworthy public posts from Facebook. The posts will include photos and videos from a variety of topics such as politics and celebrities. Content will be pulled from Facebook profiles and Pages for FB Newswire.

Facebook and Twitter are both extremely valuable tools for tracking stories in real-time. Twitter implemented hashtags and trending topics and then Facebook followed up with the same features. And Twitter redesigned user profiles that look just like Facebook recently.

Storyful will determine which posts are most interesting to the media while journalists will be encouraged to embed posts online.
