Is local news finally getting its own section on Facebook?
Posted On January 11, 2018
Though this is only a test in six local markets, it is long overdue. Recode is reporting that Facebook is trying out a new section in its app called “Today In”. It’s supposed to feature local news, targeted to how the user defines their location.
Now, what will happen to all those national news outlets and other buzz-worthy groups?
All-in-all this is probably a better way to go. Though it might be out of the main feed, hopefully more local posts will be surfaced to users.
This is a part of Facebook’s Journalism Project Initiative. Here’s a better introduction to the project.
