    • 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.

    • The company’s new app
      will compete with Twitter’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.

    • The social networking
      giant was previously reported to launch the Notify news app at the end of
      October.
    •  
    • At the time, the
      Notify app was reportedly to allow users to aggregate their favourite content
      into real-time notifications. Partnering publications were said to have the
      ability to create specific notifications for the mobile platform on behalf of
      Facebook, like a mega-tweet. Then, users will be directed to the publication’s
      website via the notification.

    • Facebook seeks to
      expand its functionalities to something much more than just a social network.
      The app will allow users to subscribe to certain organisations dubbed as
      stations, and they will then receive notifications during the day, every time
      one of the stations they have subscribed to promotes a new story.
