Is Facebook a Better Source for News Than Twitter? - Motley Fool

Is Facebook a Better Source for News Than Twitter? - Motley Fool | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
The same percentage of users get news from Facebook as Twitter. How'd that happen?
Andy Bull's insight:

From the post: "Facebook is aggressively pursuing news content for its platform with Instant Articles. Publications like The Atlantic and NBC News are publishing 20 or more articles a day in the new format, according to The Wall Street Journal. Facebook has also added features to its trending sidebar, allowing users to sort trending topics by category -- e.g. "politics."

"Twitter has been slow to react to Facebook's offensive, but 2015 has seen an accelerated rollout of new products and features. The company purchased live-streaming app Periscope, which builds on its strength in breaking news. More importantly, it has experimented with curation with its "While You Were Away..." feature.

"Later this year, Twitter will introduce Project Lightning, which will curate content around live events. The project will use human curators with newsroom experience to provide a high-quality feed of photos, videos, and comments around several live events per day. This move toward a feed similar to Facebook's will make it much easier to consume the best news content Twitter has to offer. It will be available to logged-out visitors as well as active users."
