Facebook Launches 'Today In' to Connect Users with Local News
It is currently available in 400+ U.S. cities and is being tested in Australia and “news deserts.”
Last week, Facebook announced the launch of its Today In, a new section on Facebook that aggregates local news and information. Currently, Today In is available in more than 400 U.S. cities and some cities in Australia where Facebook is testing the app. Facebook is also testing news deserts which have few news outlets by connecting them with related content in neighboring areas. Users in cities where Today In is available can go to the section directly, or they can turn on local updates to see more local news stories in their Facebook news feeds.
