Facebook Journalism Project Ready For Android Users

Facebook is launching a new feature to bridge the gap between social media and journalism.

This is a direct result of the work we’re doing through the Facebook Journalism Project. We’re listening to news publishers all over the world to better understand their needs and goals, and collaborating more closely on the development of new products from the beginning of the process.

Said the Facebook blog.

As a response to accusations it spreads fake news, the social media giant will begin a subscription tool for mobile users.

According to Facebook, users will have limited access to articles from certain news organizations.

Once they reach their limit users will be prompted to the publisher’s site to pay for a subscription.

The following list of media platforms to be available for limited viewing: Bild, The Boston Globe, The Economist, Hearst (The Houston Chronicle and The San Francisco Chronicle), La Repubblica, Le Parisien, Spiegel, The Telegraph, tronc (The Baltimore Sun, The Los Angeles Times, and The San Diego Union-Tribune), and The Washington Post..”

However, the tool will only affect Android users for now since Facebook and Apple reportedly could not make a deal for this new feature.
