There is a change coming in the world of Facebook, and those who love consuming news more than their friend’s activities will love it.
Apparently, the world’s most dominant social network is testing a special news section on its Android and iOS smartphone apps.
The section appears like Facebook Paper – a standalone mobile app created only for iOS.
Screenshots that surfaced on Twitter show the sectioned news feed. The sections are categorized, like world and US, etc.
News appears according to the topic.
Mashable reported that there’s also a tool to edit which feeds the user would like to see. “People have told us they would like options to see more stories on Facebook around specific topics they are interested in,” a Facebook spokesperson told Mashable. The spokesperson confirmed that they are indeed testing “a few feeds for people to view more and different stories”. With this tool, Facebook would be competing directly with Twitter, which is the mostly used by those looking for news.
