Facebook on Tuesday 18th November 2014 launched a new Tech News Page as FB Techwire devoted to surfacing strictly tech news in your timeline. An extension of FB Newswire, will serve as yet another tool for journalists for exposing the highest-quality work of those working in the tech community,billed as a showplace for technology talk shared by influential sources.
“The goal of FB Techwire is to aid in the discovery of original content including breaking news, first-person analysis, photos and videos for journalists that care about and cover tech,” Facebook said in an email to AFP.
Posts on the page will also be shared on Twitter from an @fbtechwire account
As Andy Mitchell, Facebook’s director of news and global media partnerships, said earlier this year about Newswire, “It’s all about thinking of Facebook as a primary source of news content, formatted so journalists can easily scan content and pick out what’s newsworthy.” Techwire will surely be treated the same way.
