Breaking News : Facebook to add news section to its mobile app
#1
Advertisement
Social media website Facebook may soon add a news section to its Android and iOS smartphone apps that may look like Facebook Paper — a standalone mobile app created only for iOS. Facebook confirmed to Mashable tech website that it is testing the new, sectioned news feed, in addition to the current format, though it is unclear if the feature would ever get an official launch.

Some screenshots surfaced on Twitter on Friday, showing that a new layout of the mobile app that highlighted multiple news sections, with topics such as world and us, sports and food.

“People have told us they would like options to see more stories on Facebook around specific topics they are interested in,” a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying. ”So we have been testing a few feeds for people to view more and different stories from people and Pages based on topic areas,” the spokesperson added.

The report said the move would encourage users to get more news from Facebook rather than other sources like Twitter or Google News.
Recently Twitter was also testing a new design for its Android app version to make it more user-friendly and easy to navigate. Several people using Twitter’s alpha and beta apps have begun seeing a design that places Twitter’s four core areas — main feed, Moments, notifications, and direct messages — as large tabs across the top of the screen.
