How do you get your news? Increasingly, it's likely that it will be via Facebook. The company has been working hard on their news interface, and it's becoming really informative. Zuckerberg has said that he wants to make it "the perfect personalized newspaper for every person in the world." What you see in your personalised newspaper is based on your activity on Facebook, as well as on lead and breaking stories. It also takes into account what your friends are reading as well, so your own activities will affect what they see.
This is another example of the importance of Facebook - irrespective of whether you like it or not - an increasing number of people will be using this as their first and quite possibly only port of call. If we add Twitter into the mix, social media really is taking on the more traditional news approach head on. Of course, we've got the whole issue of authority and validity to contend with, and to alert our members to, but that's just a new wrinkle on an old job.
