Facebook launches tech news page

20 November 2014, 08:59

San Francisco - Facebook on Tuesday launched FB Techwire, billed as a showplace for technology talk shared by influential sources.

"The goal of FB Techwire is to aid in the discovery of original content including breaking news, first-person analysis, photos and videos for journalists that care about and cover tech," Facebook said in an email to AFP.

"With every breaking tech story, debate, launch or event we will find, verify and share the most relevant and high-value content to the tech community on Facebook in real time."

The amount of newsworthy content shared at the world's leading social network is climbing, and features, such as trending topics, along with changes to the news feed have been intended to make such tidbits easier for journalists to access, according to Facebook.

Posts on the page will also be shared on Twitter from an @fbtechwire account, the California-based company said.

The launch came a day after word spread that Facebook is creating a version of the social network tailored for the business world.

Facebook at Work is being tested with a small group of businesses and could make its public debut in a matter of months, according to a source familiar with the project being led by a team in London.
