      heard feedback that people wanted to add important information that they can
      easily see, all in one place,” said Facebook product manager Keith Peiris.
      Members will be able to personalize these messages for “things happening
      around your community, like local events and news that is popular in the city

      said the change will be rolling out gradually to users of Android and iOS
      devices but that the notifications will be opt-in.

      time in your settings,” through “cards” on the social network,
      Peiris said.
    •  
    • “We’ll
      continue to listen to feedback about the information people find most useful
      and may periodically add more cards to choose from.”
