This service would be called Signal, that will be available for both Facebook and Fcaebook owned Instagram platform, where journalists will post news as a part of reporting platform.
 ”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,” Facebook’s Andy Mitchell wrote in a blog post.
Introducing Facebook Signal for Facebook and Instagram, a new stage is provided to journalist where they can post newsworthy content, across the globe. They can also monitor which topic is currently trending and related post can be publicized instantly.
Furthermore this tool will also be used to share visual content on Instagram, and all these posts will be saved for later use into custom collections. Journalists can also access lists of public figures ranked by who is being mentioned the most on Facebook, including “real-time conversations” involving politicians, authors, actors, musicians, athletes and others.
