Facebook is testing a dedicated section for local news

Facebook is testing a new section dedicated to local news and events, Recode reports. Called “Today In,” it’s currently being tested in six cities — New Orleans, Louisiana; Little Rock, Arkansas; Billings, Montana; Peoria Illinois; Olympia, Washington; and Binghamton, New York. It’s accessible through the menu button on the bottom right of the mobile app and will include stories from local publishers — which will be approved by Facebook’s News Partnerships team — as well as emergency updates and local events.
