This is how Facebook should become your news portal

In a blog post yesterday, Facebook announced that the social network is currently introducing personalized news into your news feed. According to Facebook, news articles that are considered high quality will be placed at the top of the news feed, especially on mobile devices.

– We have noticed that users appreciate news articles on Facebook, so we will focus on showing high-quality content, based on user reactions, writes Facebook in its blog post.

Recently, Facebook has shown an increasing interest in becoming a central point for the consumption of news. Allthingsd reported last week that the company is working on a feature that will allow certain posts to be saved for later reading. A feature reminiscent of bookmarking services like Pocket and Instapaper.

According to a report from the Pew Research Center in October, most users on Facebook discover news articles by accident. Something that Facebook now wants to try to make more direct and personal.

When Facebook updated the news feed earlier this year, the company’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, stated that the service will become “the world’s best personal news source”.
