    What’s Happening:
    Facebook is giving human-curated journalism another shot, after an infamous
    failure in the aftermath of charges of political bias. A team of about 10 people will be in charge of choosing high-quality articles that will appear at the top of the News Tab.

     

    Why it Matters:
    Following in the footsteps of Apple News in curating quality journalism in an approach that The New York Times called “radical”: humans over machines. The Facebook curatorial team will consist journalists spread across the U.S. and London, who will select content of different topics relevant to users, which will appear in a section of the News Tab called “Top News.”
