who selects the content they think is newsworthy? the selections could easily be chosen to support a political purpose
and I guess it is in the fine print, that whatever you post to your personal account can be used by news people everywhere ?

there isn't going to be a guy sitting in a room making decisions. It'll be based on engagement numbers, highly engaging content related to an event will have a higher chance of being shown.
Hey at least its another chance for page owners to get their content seen.

There are other services that provide us news. I think it is a mistake to try to make the Facebook feed anything more than a feed of your friend's information. The more they clutter the feed the easier it will be for another more friend-focused usurper to jump in and take market share from them.

couldn't disagree more - everybody I know uses Facebook as a news source, be it sports or a friend going on vacation.

Another overreach to draw eyeballs... this time from a different direction. Only time and market will tell if it actually works.

Do remember, it's not going to appear in your own news feed unless you specifically "like" it.

My sense is that both FB and Twitter are already news aggregators. So this is more refinement of what we've already seen.

The main question in my mind is how do they check Fact vs. Fiction in the stories picked up. I know there isn't much fact checking in the world now, but this is just going to get out of hand.
And instead of anyone getting paid they are just going to "borrow" (*steal*) whatever news (stories) they want so they can make the profit without the expense.
I don't see how I could ever call someone who writes stories on Facebook an actual news writer.
