Facebook's Notify app provides a simple method to keeping up with the latest news from your favorite sources. The app encourages users to curate a list of news sources that will deliver real time notifications to your phone, and can often be read directly from your lock screen. Notify offers a convenient way to gather articles and stories from your favorite news sources, without having to scour through timelines or websites.

Presumably, the move from Facebook signals a greater use of news media, mimicking its rival Twitter. Much like Twitter, Notify will also suggest news sources based on your Facebook profile. To follow a news source, users are asked to select from a variety of 'Stations,' which include Fox Sports, The Weather Channel and CNN.
