Facebook has brought its news service to keep users connected with news through social media.
The UK becomes the second international market after the US, where Facebook News has been launched.
Facebook’s curated news portal allows users in the UK to access the new tab of Android and iOS apps.
The social media company can later bring such service to other markets as well.
Partnership with media organizations
Facebook has partnered with several media organizations to provide new news service on its app.
These include hundreds of local news sites, including Channel 4 News, Daily Mail Group, DC Thomson, Financial Times, Sky News and Telegraph Media Group, The Economist, The Guardian and The Independent.
Apart from this, Facebook has also announced partnerships with lifestyle titles such as GQ, Cosmopolitan, Glamor and Vogue.
Big news of the day will be seen
In the Facebook news section, users will see the biggest news of the day above.
Apart from this, personalized stories related to the news sources that users follow will also be shown.
Different sections like Sports, Entertainment, Health and Science will also appear in the Facebook News tab.
In addition to liking a story, users will be able to hide stories that they do not want to see. After that they will not be shown that kind of news.
This is how users’ favorite news will be seen
Facebook has confirmed that the company is working with a service called Upday, so that users can see the news to their liking.
News with updates too
With the help of the new news service, users watching updates related to friends throughout the day will be able to see the big news of the day with a single tap.
Previously, where news appeared in the middle of common posts, it will now appear together.
The company says that in the new news tab, users will get the right mix of news of their choice along with the essentials.
However, Facebook has not said anything about bringing this service to the rest of the world.
When will Facebook news arrive in India?
After launching the news service in the US in October 2019, Facebook has now brought this feature to the UK. In such a situation, it may take time to reach other countries and Indian users will have to wait a long time.
