Facebook has been busy lately. Last week they announced that organic distribution of posts that are promotional in nature will be reduced. Today, they launched two new products: FB Techwire and Facebook Groups App. No big deal.
FB Techwire (very similar to FB Newswire, which launched in April 2014), is powered by Storyful and will help people who follow the page discover original content including breaking news, first-person analyses, photos and videos for journalists who care about and cover tech.
Facebook Groups app is designed to help people share quickly and easily with groups such as groups of friends, family, fellow students on a project, professionals, co-workers, etc.
What is the main takeaway from these new products? Facebook wants to remain in the business of keeping people connected, and they don’t plan to rest on their laurels.
