Edition of The Wall Street Journal, citing its sources today reported that the social network Facebook is working on a proprietary service delivering news to the mobile version of its software.
Earlier, it became known that the solution is working on a similar social network and Twitter.
WSJ reports that the new service under the working title of Reader will display the default news content from network users, as well as professional publishers, having a presence on Facebook. It is expected that the service will have a mechanism for automatic content filtering, grouping, and writing news news trends on the basis of the semantic analysis of news.
According to unofficial data, a small group of developers worked on Reader for almost a year, and now the product is based on the code of Flipboard, previously bought by Facebook. WSJ also notes that at the moment it is not clear exactly when Facebook will launch a new project and whether it is running on its own or be included in any other product.
