Facebook News, which will appear in a new dedicated section on the Facebook app, will feature stories from a mix of publications, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post, as well as other digital-only outlets. .

Facebook’s partners only include Smule, Vita, and VivaVideo, but that doesn’t mean connections close their doors to other companies.

Facebook Reels, TikTok and MORE

Facebook Reels officially launched in early 2022 and the company offered the feature for all content creator needs to bring their content to the social media platform. Meta’s Facebook reels are similar to Instagram’s reels, and vertical videos offer a new format for everyone to enjoy, avoiding the horizontal or landscape layout.

TikTok and Facebook are now competitors in the social media industry, with reports indicating there have been conspiracies against the Chinese platform. The report explained how Meta created a campaign that played against TikTok and its existence, ByteDance’s social media app being one of the best services in the world.

Facebook Reels showcasing different third-party video streaming apps on its platform is huge, especially since it allows users to access different content on their platform. This makes it something like YouTube that users can use to upload many of their videos to its feeds, allowing content creators the freedom and accessibility to unite their platforms.
