Facebook has partnered with social network content aggregator Storyful to launch FB Newswire, an online resource that draws together photos, video and status updates from frontline reporters. The service, which is available through both Facebook and Twitter, is intended for use by journalists looking for up-to-the-minute reporting.
Powered by Storyful, the leader in social content discovery and verification for newsrooms, 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.
Updates posted to FB Newswire will also be embeddable on third-party sites.
