Facebook has said it's started testing Facebook News to a select audience in the U.S. The News tab will carry a wide range of topics, but Facebook has said users can mute the topics and specific publishers.
There will also be a linked subscriptions option so users can read subscribed articles from publishers.
During the initial test, we’ll showcase local original reporting by surfacing local publications from the largest major metro areas across the country, beginning with New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Philadelphia, Houston, Washington DC, Miami, Atlanta and Boston. In the coming months, we’ll include local news from Today In, our local news and community information tab

Publishers included have to be in the news feed index
