Facebook says there's a higher demand by consumers for local news on their Facebook feeds. According to CEO Mark Zuckerberg said,

"People consistently tell us they want to see more local news on Facebook," 

The company is seriously making changes to the platform ever since the criticisms over fake news soared as an aftermath of the US elections. They are really trying to combat this in every way. I hope they don't end up making it a boring community with all these changes.

Anyway, Facebook now sorts news by how "trustworthy" users think they are. Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post saying, "Starting today, we're going to show more stories from news sources in your local town or city,". "If you follow a local publisher or if someone shares a local story, it may show up higher in News Feed. We're starting this first in the US, and our goal is to expand to more countries this year."

Facebook is defining a publisher as local, it says if its links "are clicked on by readers in a tight geographic area."

Local news has largely suffered in recent years. Outlets have seen advertising dollars move online, particularly to major platforms like Facebook and Google, while readership has declined.

January 19 this year, Zuckerberg said that Facebook intends to prioritize "news that is trustworthy, informative, and local."

So watch out.
