Another standalone Facebook app, dedicated to news: it could arrive next week
Notify, the news application created by Facebook, could arrive next week. Once active, Notify will allow users to subscribe to the channels of interest, and request to receive them update notifications on newly published stories. Notify designed as a stand-alone app, so it is not yet clear how it will interact with newspapers and agencies that publicly publish on the social network.
According to the Financial Times, some of the partners participating in the initiative would have already been indicated: Vogue, The Washington Post, CNN and Mashable. According to other rumors, the app should be structured so as to distinguish between Providers, ie individual content producers and Stations, specialized channels.
But the truth, it seems, will be discovered soon.
