"Subscribing to the newswire is easy. Just like the FB Newswire page and those stories will appear in your news feed."
Washington, April 25 - In a bid to make Facebook a more useful resource for journalists and news publications, the social networking site late Thursday launched FB Newswire that promises to offer scribes a repository of verified, real-time content for use.

The Facebook page will have hand-selected and journalist-verified news stories from across Facebook's platform, Andy Mitchell, director of news and global media partnerships at Facebook, was quoted as saying.

FB Newswire has been launched in partnership with News Corp-owned Storyful, a news agency that aggregates news content shared on social networks.

FB Newswire will collect newsworthy content that Facebook users share publicly via their accounts, including media like photos and videos, as well as status updates from users on the ground where news is breaking, a press release said.

FB Newswire will include stories from around the word, including stories in languages other than English.

Subscribing to the newswire is easy. Just like the FB Newswire page and those stories will appear in your news feed.

Facebook is also releasing a Twitter handle for the service, called @FBNewswire, along with the feed, media reports added.
