This is Facebook's latest effort to try to win users away from Twitter, which has remained a popular resource for journalists searching for story leads. FB Newswire launched in April and this is the next step in Facebook's strategy to keep users engaged.

 

Facebook has a massive user base and increasing ad revenue, making it an appealing resource for news agencies to take advantage of.
