Facebook News takes Another Hard Left Turn
Facebook confirmed on Tuesday it’s hiring a team of veteran journalists to help curate stories in its soon-to-launch news tab.
The company confirmed the plans after The New York Times reported that Facebook is bringing human curators on board instead of just relying on algorithms to determine what stories its users see.
A small team of editors will be charged with selecting the most relevant national news stories of the day. The content will appear in the top news section of the tab, a new feature that’s scheduled to launch this fall.
