Facebook will be hiring a team of journalists to curate stories for its soon to be released News Tab feature of its mobile app. The app will be rolled out in beta later this year. The articles will be generated by an algorithm with the top stories coming from its team of “veteran journalists”.
Notable Quotes: “Our goal with the News Tab is to provide a personalized, highly relevant experience for people. To start, for the Top News section of the tab we’re pulling together a small team of journalists to ensure we’re highlighting the right stories.”-Campbell Brown, Facebook’s head of news partnerships.
