Facebook Expands Section for Local News
Facebook announced this week that it has expanded its “Today In” section where local news and alerts from relevant government pages are featured.
The firm said in a blogpost that the feature, which is already available in over 400 US cities, is now being tested in Australia. Plans for ways to display a ‘breaking news label’ and ‘Today In’ feature had been announced earlier this year.
Facebook added that it has also begun testing the feature with over 100 local government and first responder pages.
