Facebook News feature launches in UK

Facebook News, the social network's dedicated section for news content, is launching in the UK. The UK is the second market to get Facebook News, which launched in the United States last year. Several major news publishers, including Channel 4, Sky News, and The Guardian have signed deals with Facebook to provide content. Facebook News is the social network's own attempt to address the long-running friction between it and news publishers, as advertising spend has increasingly moved to the large tech firms instead of individual news outlets. The tab features a mix of major daily news stories and "Personalised" news selected for each reader based on their interests, as decided by Facebook's algorithm.
