Facebook rolls out ‘Notify’, a push notification feature


Social network Facebook is rolling out a feature called ‘Notify’, for starters, in the US.  Notify specifically sends you mobile notifications from publishers you like including ones like BuzzFeed or CNN. Users will be asked to follow publishers or “stations” which will then push content throughout the day to their phone’s lock screens.

The push notifications only include a snippet of info, like a headline, but a link within the notification will send you to the publisher’s mobile Web page, which surfaces inside the app. If you don’t have time to read something right away, you can save Content to read later or share it with others through Facebook.
