According to reports, Facebook is going to introduce real-time standalone news app called Notify next week. The app allows users to subscribe to specific news organizations and receive notifications when news breaks.
The app will feature content from dozens of media partners, including Vogue, the Washington Post and CBS etc. as reported by the Financial Times. Facebook Notify aims to eliminate the inconvenience in downloading various news applications by aggregating everything in one app.
The company’s new app will compete with Twitter Inc’s recently launched service called Moments, which aims to provide a better way of curating and aggregating content for users and help them follow live events, and Snapchat’s Discover service. Additionally, since Notify would be a news app, it could also compete with the likes of Flipboard, Inside, Yahoo News Digest and Apple News.
Facebook had earlier tied up with nine news publishers to launch “Instant Articles”, which publishes their content directly to the social network’s mobile news feeds.[su_box title=”More From DSIM:-” box_color=”#c7c7c7″ title_color=”#000000″ radius=”5″]1) An Interview with Co- Founder of Vanitycube.in, Renu Bisht
