Facebook has launched FB Newswire, with the aim to make it easier for journalists and newsrooms to find, share and embed newsworthy content from the popular social networking website in their work.

Andy Mitchell, Facebook’s Director of News & Global Media Partnerships, described this new venture:

Today, we’re excited to announce FB Newswire, a resource that will make it easier for journalists and newsrooms to find, share and embed newsworthy content from Facebook in the media they produce. Powered by Storyful, the leader in social content discovery and verification for newsrooms, FB Newswire aggregates newsworthy content shared publicly on Facebook by individuals and organizations across the world for journalists to use in their reporting. This will include original photos, videos and status updates posted by people on the front lines of major events like protests, elections and sporting events.

FB Newswire can be reached at facebook.com/FBNewswire and at Twitter account @FBNewswire.
 
Facebook is confident that their news expertise will help make it even easier for journalists to use compelling social content from Facebook in their news-gathering and reporting.

News Corporation, which owns the Wall Street Journal, acquired Storyful in December in a deal valued at about $25 million.
