Soon Facebook may add a news section to its Android and iOS smartphone apps which may look like Facebook Paper–standalone mobile app created only for iOS.
Facebook confirmed to Mashable tech website about the testing of new sectioned news feed, it has also cleared that they are not sure whether the feature would get an official launch or not.
After the reports, some screenshots were out on Twitter, showing the new layout of the mobile app with multiple news sections. This new feature will encourage people to fetch more news from Facebook than other sources like Twitter or Google News.
This new development is on the demand of people to see more stories on specific topics which interests them.
“People have told us they would like options to see more stories on Facebook around specific topics they are interested in,” a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying.
“So we have been testing a few feeds for people to view more and different stories from people and Pages based on topic areas,” the spokesperson added.
