Here comes Signal, a Content curation tool on FB & Instagram for journos


Facebook Signal
The world of traditional journalism just took another turn. Social network Facebook has launched Signal, a dashboard for FB & image sharing network Instagram to help journos source Content.
FB said on its official blog post: We’ve heard from journalists that they want an easy way to make Facebook a more vital part of their news gathering with the ability to surface relevant trends, photos, videos, and posts on Facebook and Instagram for use in their storytelling and reporting.

Today we’re excited to introduce Signal, for Facebook and Instagram, a free discovery and curation tool for journalists who want to source, gather, and embed newsworthy content from Facebook and Instagram, across news, culture, entertainment, sports, and more—all in one place.

This step continues our collaboration with the journalism community just after last week’s launch of Mentions for Profiles.

Using Signal, journalists can discover what’s trending now on Facebook. Reporters interested in seeing what conversations are resonating on the social network can also monitor which topics are trending, & then quickly display related Content that has been shared publicly—unranked & in chronological order— from both people & Pages for deeper context on those trends. Search functionality makes it easy to surface Content directly related to a story or topic they are tracking, said FB.
