Facebook launches new tool for journalists

Facebook has launched 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.

The new service is powered by Storyful, a social content discovery and verification tool for newsrooms.

FB Newswire will aggregate 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 can be found on Facebook at Facebook.com/FBNewswire and on Twitter at @FBNewswire.

Storyful is owned by News Corp.
