Re: Would you use it?
I thought Facebook was just a platform where people posted interesting things about their lives and interesting news.  (Interesting in their eyes at least not necessarily all their friends.)
What other things is Facebook?

Re: Would you use it?
I probably wouldn't. I get news with the newsify app. 

At this point, facebook is so many things that I wonder what it really is.

Re: Would you use it?
I agree, Sadie. I subscribe to a number of news pages via Facebook and my friends share a lot of good content I'd read later if there was something like a bookmark button.

Re: Would you use it?
My friends post a lot of interesting articles on Facebook, but sometimes don't have time to read immediately.  I'd use the reader if I could save articles in the reader to read later..

Re: Would you use it?
I wouldn't use it because news doesn't require Facebook.

Re: Would you use it?
I don't see the point of combining (real) news updates with status updates from friends.

 

But then, I'm old and I don't get my news from Facebook or Twitter.
